WOWZR! Let’s do it again.

Thank you to the amazing coaches and the Tumbleweed Sailing volunteers who worked to make the first WOWZR! a high-quality learning event for women sailors from across the nation. There was a lot of learning, sharing, enthusiasm and fun during the three days.

NWSA envisions future events like WOWZR! to help make seeing boats racing with all women crews more common.

Mark you calendars for WOWZR! at Lake Pleasant November 6-8 2020. 

Hands-on learning in charming Port Townsend, WA


Learning exactly how to use a flare, then practicing, will make using one while facing an emergency safer.

Moderated by Sheila McCurdy of US Sailing, with Nancy Erley and Linda Newland, this course proved to be invaluable for racers and cruisers alike, offering women sailors both online and experiential learning as well as certification from US Sailing. Check back again for our next Coastal Safety at Sea event.

Before the boatload of fun at Lake Pleasant, AZ.

AdventureSail® is a nationwide program for at risk girls ages nine to 14. The one-day introductory sailing event is a rewarding experience for the volunteers as well as the girls. Girls are experiencing the joys of sailing in conjunction with sailing venues across the US. Through the program we strive to provide a positive activity for girls that will encourage positive life choices, develop self-confidence to overcome adverse living conditions and introduce career paths and opportunities that involve the marine industry, marine related sciences and their local waters.

Congratulations to the St. Croix Yacht Club, Tumbleweed Sailing and WSA-OC at Dana Point for hosting their first AdventureSail.
