During this 2-day event, women participate in a wide variety
of activities to elevate their understanding of the sport of sailing.
The Women’s Sailing Seminar is all about women teaching women
how to sail. It is a fun, relaxing, educational, inspiring, one of a kind

weekend that has drawn hundreds of women each year with many
returning annually. Top notch women sailors from all along the Pacific

Coast volunteer their expertise to provide instruction
in workshops that occur in the classroom and on-the-water.


Be a lucky winner at our exciting raffle which includes valuable and useful sailing prizes!

Island Yacht Club’s Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar was created and founded
 in 1993 by Mary Quigley and Linda Newland after they attended a women’s sailing seminar
down south. They thought, “We need a seminar in Northern California, too!” – where women
could learn about sailing from other women.
