Women’s Sailing Program Set for This Weekend

The Island Yacht Club is hosting the 19th annual Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar both these days this weekend, October 1-2, to give women a special opportunity to learn about sailing from other women in and around Alameda Marina.

On the first day, students can participate in courses taught in classrooms and on the water that focus on basic and advanced sailing, including topics such as docking, anchoring, navigating and racing.

The second day gives women sailors a chance to race on the Oakland-Alameda Estuary or cruise on the Bay.

To register online on Friday, September 30, visit the event’s website.
