Sailing between waypoints successfully and without incident takes cooperation from all aboard. It’s a team effort. Let’s be teammates with our mutual love of attracting more women and girls to the sport and recreation of sailing. 

Why Partner with NWSA

In partnering with NWSA, you are demonstrating your support for women in the sport, recreation and education of sailing. Your brand will gain exposure to a growing demographic of sailing enthusiasts while your financial support will provide much needed funds to keep the many programs NWSA has to offer as well as help us grow and expand more programs to reach untapped regions and demographics across the country.  Your continued, annual contributions will aid in the success of our organization’s 30 plus years of continued efforts to support women on their path to excellence in the sport of sailing. As a valued partner, NWSA hopes to offer YOU targeted exposure for your products and services to a captive, enthusiastic and engaged audience.


The NWSA has a volunteer Board of Directors who work tirelessly to keep the non-profit organization and its programs running.  For over 30 years, out of their mutual passion for spreading the love of sailing among seasoned and new women sailors, they have managed to keep the NWSA boat afloat! From the first days in the 1990’s  where Hall-of-Famer Doris Colgate inspired programs like AdventureSail, they have pooled their talents to successfully transition into the digital age. The programs that continue today, mostly funded by membership fees and donations, are:



NWSA has the goal to expand our scholarships and education offerings. We would love to reach more women sailors and change the lives of more young girls.  Educational programs that we have hosted in the past like the International Safety at Sea program, in-person Diesel Workshops, Marine Electrical Workshops, L.A.S.T program, have been very successful and have met a demand for this kind of service.

We need your help to revive these programs after the financial strain we experienced due to circumstances since the 2020 lockdowns.

Your financial support will also provide much needed capital for the preliminary planning months and expenses involved in preparing for the Annual Women’s Sailing conferences.

Your financial support will also help us maintain the many, albeit modest, operational costs such as web hosting, marketing, book-keeping etc. It’s not the glamorous part of support but it is an absolute necessity!
