Steering the Course

Be part of a global festival of women’s sailing at Nelson Yacht Club – Join us on the afternoon of Saturday 2nd October!

Suitable for complete beginners through to competent sailors, it will all be about getting on the water together and celebrating women’s sailing.

On-water activity followed by food and drinks ashore. More details to come 🙂

Find out more about the global festival through this article on the World Sailing website:

Women & Girls sailing will be a particular focus for us this season. Sailing is an exceptional sport in that women and men often compete directly against each other.

In our youth sailing school programmes we’ve seen a male/female split of around 60/40 for a number of years. However, a more 80/20 split in regular club sailors suggests a significant drop-off as our young female sailors become adults or start to sail competitively. Let’s change this!

If you are interested in being part of the event in Nelson, please jot down your details below. This will be a massive help with planning the event and catering etc…
