Diversity Toolkit — with Maire Rogers
On February 10, 2022 at the National Sailing Programs Symposium, in cooperation with US Sailing, WSF board member Capt. Marie Rogers presented “A Diversity Toolkit: Let’s All Go Sailing”. In this presentation, Rogers investigates reasons sailing became a sport fostering exclusivity rather than inclusivity and how that can be changed. Setting an equity goal is not enough. It will not magically happen without a plan and a lot of work.
Start Planning Your AdventureSail®
Official 2022 Date: August 13
NWSA has redesigned the delivery of our long-standing AdventureSail® program. Cooperating with USA Sailing, Tall Ships America and others, we are working to introduce more underserved girls to sailing. We have had both well-established hosts enjoy successful sails for girls in the summer of 2021 – and a few are scheduled for 2022. Help us continue the work to increase the number of girls we introduce to the magic and empowerment of sailing. Apply to host your own local AdventureSail®!
