Womens Sailing – 2010 Schedule

Dear OCSC Women Sailors,

If you haven’t made it to one of Alicia Witham’s Women’s Sailing Events, you’re in for a great sailing surprise. We’ve received a number of warm responses from women who have participated in the events. I’ve included a few of the many nice words:

“Alicia,  Thanx  for such a wonderful day.  Terrific folks, interesting destination, fantastic sail, perfect weather.”

“What a wonderful day we had on Sunday!   Thanks again to Alicia for organizing such an inspiring and exhilarating day … it was a great way for us OCSC women sailors to get to know eachother better and also have a great adventure out on SF Bay, complete with tankers and high winds and spinnaker races, oh my!”

“I just thought I’d drop you a quick note to say that this event was great.  It was definitely my favorite so far.  Alicia is awesome and I would love to participate in another. ”

“The women’s sail event was really great.  It is a missing link for me being filled by OCSC.  I am a very new member and new to sailing.  This is really what I need to stay focused and continue to get more skills and more fun.. Thank you for helping make this happen. I look forward to future gatherings.”


We’ve set the schedule for the Women’s Sailing Events for the rest of 2010. So far, these events have filled up incredibly fast. We suggest calling in to RSVP right away (800-223-2984) if you’re interested in attending!

    Hey you guys,
    I know it’s late, but are there any openings in the hard skills day on the 14th? Or the 3 bridges?
    Thanks- Beth

    Please keep me on your mailing list about future sailing events. Unfortunately due to travel commitments I can’t make the Oct. and Nov. dates but I am very interested in the concept of a women’s sailing group and want to stay in touch. Thank you.

    Sorry, but int’l travel will prevent my joining this time. However, when the weather first breaks in 2011, I hope to be one of the first to hear of the new invitations to explore! This sounds absolutely marvelous and I can’t wait!!
