You have just a month to get there - the 11th Year of the USA's National Women's Sailing Association (NWSA) conference will be held at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA, on June 04.

With BoatUS as the event's primary sponsor, the perennially sold-out event gives women a chance to learn or enhance their skills in recreational sailing through seminars on the water, on the dock and in the classroom.

Topics include introduction to sailing, sail trim, spinnakers, crew overboard, operating a motorboat, knots, charting, suddenly single-handed, diesel engine troubleshooting, understanding wind and more.

'Sailing teaches leadership and teamwork, adds skills that can bring a lifetime of enjoyment and creates memorable experiences,' said BoatUS Manager of Sponsorships Claire Wyngaard. 'Attending this event will increase your confidence while learning and networking with others who share your love for the outdoors and active lifestyle.'

In addition to a keynote speaker at dinner, the 2012 BoatUS/NWSA Leadership in Women's Sailing Award will be bestowed. This award, begun in 1999, honors an individual who has built a record of achievement in inspiring, educating and enriching the lives of women through sailing.

The conference includes continental breakfast, buffet lunch, dinner and raffle prizes. Registration fees are $120 for NWSA members or $155 for non-NWSA members ($15 additional after May 25). To register and get more information, visit www.womensailing.org or call 781-631-2084.
