COVID-19 impacted in-person events after March last year, but we went virtual. While we will continue to engage our members on-line, we are cautiously reentering the realm of in-person engagements.

WOWZR! We are doing it again.

Lake Pleasant, Phoenix, Arizona on November 5-7, 2021 WOWZR! returns. Registration will open September 1. Space is limited. Check back for updates!

Thanks to the amazing coaches and the Tumbleweed Sailing volunteers. The inaugural WOWZR! was a high-quality learning event for women sailors from across the nation. There was a lot of learning, sharing, enthusiasm and fun during the three days.

NWSA is fostering future events like WOWZR! Let’s make boats racing with all women crews common.
