WSA is Sailing Strong

Video by Jim Orchid
Women's Sailing Association at HYCHYC’s Women’s Sailing Association turned 30 years old in 2013, but it’s as fresh and active as ever. WSA was organized in September of 1983 to encourage HYC women to become involved in all aspects of sailing and boating.

WSA hosts racing, social and educational events throughout the year… sometimes formal, sometimes informal, but always fun. Please join us, meet other HYC female sailors and non-sailors and find out about the rich history of this lively group!

Each year, WSA hosts Windward Bound Women’s Sailing Camp, teaching women to sail in a stress-free environment that promotes the camaraderie of sailing. For more information, click here.
