Sailing convention for women
Published on November 9th, 2021
Following the COVID-19 hiatus in 2021, the 31st annual Sailing Convention for Women will be held in 2022 on February 5 in Corona del Mar, CA. The convention features an all-day series of on-the-water instruction and shore-based workshops, from beginners to the very experienced women sailors. The Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club is the hosting venue as it has been for the past 27 years.
“The Convention gives women an opportunity to meet other women sailors, discuss options for cruising, racing and recreational sailing, and find out about women’s sailing organizations in their area, as well as instructional programs available,” described by founder and producer, Gail Hine.
The guest speaker at the dinner program is Zuzana Prochazka; freelance travel and boating author/photographer, featured writer for a dozen magazines and websites. She also holds a USCG 100 Ton Master Captains License and is past President of Boating Writers International.
New in 2022 is an optional morning-after Networking Brunch on February 6, 2022. This gives attendees a chance to continue making new connections and rekindle old ones. Brunch is to be held at the Newport Beach Yacht Club at 10 am to noon.
