Sail-World.com : Sailing women head for February convention

Sailing women head for February convention

'Women’s Sailing Convention, February 04'    .

You're a keen woman sailor and you want to connect with others to learn what's going on in their world. No matter where you sail there's no better place than Newport California on 4th February this year - there's still plenty of time to plan now, but hurry - it is usually sold out!

Uniting to learn is the key feature of the Southern California Yachting Association's (SCYA) 23rd Annual Women's Sailing Convention. This premier sailing convention for women will take place at the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club in Corona del Mar, California. Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) is primary sponsor of the the event.

Centered around a series of on-and-off-the-water educational workshops, is open to all women sailors from novices to experts.

Workshop topics include:

Welcome Aboard (for beginners)
Diesels
Hints & Hazards of World Wide Cruising
Pirates and the Cruising Sailor
Dinghy Do's and Don'ts
Introduction to Racing
Tactics
Docking
Overboard Procedures
Suddenly Singlehanded Interactive
Weather
Sail Trim
Basic Navigation
Spinnaker Rigging
Offshore Cruising
Introduction to Sailing, and more...

Top women sailors from all over Southern California, many of them US Coast Guard-licensed captains, present all of the workshops.

'This event gives women an opportunity to meet many other women sailors, find out about existing women's sailing organizations in their area, instructional programs available, and many other areas of interest for those who would like to do more - racing, cruising and day sailing,' said Gail Hine, the event's organizer. 'We'll have something meaningful for everyone. For those who are already involved but desire more, we will offer some new areas of inspiration and instruction along with excellent networking opportunities.'

Guest speaker:
The featured dinner guest speaker will be world-class sailor, instructor and delivery Captain Diane DeWitte who has made her passion - sailing - her living. At the tender age of seven, DeWitte helped her older brother sew sails on his home-built sailboat in upstate New York. Later, after graduating college with a business degree, she left New York City and moved to the Fiji Islands for three years. A 21-day delivery cruise to Sydney, Australia, with three other sailors aboard a 36-foot sloop shaped the rest of her life, which has brought her to ports and waterways of the Far East, Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, Alaska, British Columbia, and Baja Mexico. De Witte has cruised for the last two years with her six-year old daughter, traveling half way around the world with her.

Prepaid registration is required as space is limited and the event is an annual sell-out. A registration form is available at http://wsscya.scyaweb.org or by contacting Gail Hine, SCYA Women's Sailing Convention, at hine@scya.org, +1-951-677-8121.

The convention fee of $175.00 includes workshops, breakfast, lunch, dinner, souvenir and handouts. Join the online discussion on the Convention Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pages/Womens-Sailing-Convention/188874971193589.
