Making Changes Come About.®
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.
The 2017 Women’s Sailing Conference rought sailing luminaries together in Marblehead.
Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year and key note speaker Sally Barkow, is among a handful of women competing at the highest level of the sport. Linda Lindquist-Bishop who was a member of the first and only all-women’s America’s Cup team was honored at the conference for her contribution to women in the sport. Lindquist-Bishop was awarded the 2017 BoatUS/NWSA Leadership in Women’s Sailing Award.
We are always grateful to our sponsors Boat/US and Black Rock Sailing School together with the Corinthian Yacht Club who help us bring great women to the conference each year.
