Published on March 29th, 2017

The National Sailing Hall of Fame will host an Adams Cup Sailing reunion on May 19-21 in Annapolis, MD. The weekend event is for female sailors – mothers, daughters, granddaughters – to share sailing stories, go sailing, celebrate women in sailing and engage the next generation.
