Girls often look to women in their lives for cues and examples of how to think, act, and confidently take risks. Women like us, who by setting positive examples for them — owning our achievements, taking calculated risks, showing confidence — we help develop confident, able women to lead us into the future.
|NWSA has redesigned the delivery of our long-standing AdventureSail program. Cooperating with US Sailing, Tall Ships America and others, we can introduce more underserved girls to sailing.|
For anyone entering the sport, having another sailor who looks like them to lean on, who understands their self-doubts, their fears and concerns and is available to celebrate achievements and milestones along the way, can make the difference for sailing to become a life-enriching experience. New sailors may take up racing. Perhaps become a skipper or an instructor. Perhaps they will even buy a boat!
NWSA is working hand-in-hand with US Sailing and Tall Ships America to promote a National AdventureSail® Day. All of US Sailing’s 1,700 member organizations will be invited to take part by organising an AdventureSail® Day locally. That said, with continuing uncertainties, we will creatively develop safe ways to begin a life-long love of sailing while adhering to health standards.
IMAGINE THE EMPOWERMENT AND FREEDOM SAILING CAN PROVIDE
Thinking out of the box, prepping and making plans for the future, are all the more important in difficult times. We will begin by engaging girls and give them a basis for getting aboard and raising the sails.
