Registrations continue to arrive daily! Women from six different states are coming to Milwaukee to spend an exciting day learning and networking about sailing. They sail on boats from 15-50 feet and lots in between. They are cruisers and racers, new to the sport and old hands.
You can be one of them. There are still spots open in all 20 workshops, but not for long. Register now to have the best chance of getting your first choices.
Heads up! The conference is already three-quarters filled. If you want to ensure your spot, act now!
Don't be a ground hog, get out to a sailing seminar! There's so much happening off the water while we wait for spring and the MWSC on May 19th. Non-profits like the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center and Sheboygan's SEAS have full schedules of winter classes. Safety organizations including the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and US Sailing Safety at Sea are doing lots of programming. Many of the businesses that help us keep our boats afloat -- Larson Marine, North Sails, Crowley's Yacht Yard, West Systems -- are also offering classes taught by experts in their fields. And don't miss the special 25% discount on USBoat Foundation's specialty workshops from March 18-24!
Check out the calendar page on our website for more information and links to these (and more!) upcoming educational opportunities.

Just a reminder that the Denis Sullivan leaves the dock at 10 a.m. today. Looking forward to seeing our women sailors and their guests on board!
We are working hard to make everything perfect for Saturday. Well, everything but the weather anyhow.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature has had a very unpredictable week and forecasts have changed dramatically several times. Right now Sailflow tells us that it will be cold and breezy, possibly raining. As most attendees are outside for at least a small portion of the day… prepare for everything! Dockside classes will be held to the best of our ability. Unfortunately, those gusts of winds in the 30 mph range will likely mean that we will not be able to use demo boats.
But back to the things we CAN promise you – you’ll learn a ton, and meet amazing women sailors, and have a fantastic time!
