Elizabeth (Sue) Corl, of Marblehead, MA, a member of the Board of Directors of the Women’s Sailing Foundation (WSF), was a tireless advocate for WSF programs. She raised two daughters and was involved with many volunteer organizations supporting girls. She was an organizer of the first Boston AdventureSail® program which took place in Boston Harbor at Courageous Sailing Center in 1997. Corl was also the co-chair of the inaugural Women’s Sailing Conference in Marblehead in 2001.

Sue Corl died in 2007 but she will always be remembered for her desire to introduce the sport of sailing to young girls. In 2015, the Women’s Sailing Foundation board established the Sue Corl Youth Scholarship in her memory.
