Do you want to be part of a national non-profit organization that focuses on improving the lives of women and girls through education and sailing? Do you have a skill - event planning, fundraising , public relations, or secretarial – that you’re willing to put to volunteer work? If so, consider being a member of the board of directors of the Women's Sailing Foundation.
