Women on the Water

Women On The Water

The Women’s Committee hosts educational programs, networking events and monthly happy hours that encourage the women of the Club to get onto the water. The series features winter lectures and a summer sailing series that teaches attendees the ins and outs of sailing, racing tactics and new developments in the sport. It's professional instruction for women, by women.
