The National Women's Sailing Association (NWSA) will hold the 10th Annual Women's Sailing Conference Saturday, June fourth at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Massachusetts.

BoatUS is the event's primary sponsor. Women can 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, introduction to weather, understanding wind, marine medicine, emergency seamanship 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.'

The event's featured speaker will be NWSA founder Doris Colgate, Chief Executive Officer and President of Offshore Sailing School. She has received many awards including the Betty Cook Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award from Boating Magazine, the International Women in Boating Award for her work in the marine industry and the BoatUS / NWSA Leadership in Women's Sailing Award for seeking new ways to introduce women and girls to sailing.

In addition, the 2010 BoatUS / NWSA Leadership in Women's Sailing Award will be awarded at the conference. 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 $115 for NWSA members or $150 for non-NWSA members ($15 additional after May 20). To register and get more information, Women Sailing or Boat US
