Women’s Sailing Programs
Seattle Sailing Club hosts a monthly Women’s Program and a Women’s racing team in the Summer. The women of the Club are strong, capable, self-sufficient, and motivated sailors. The purpose of our group is to provide an encouraging and supportive environment for ladies to fulfill their sailing goals and dreams. Whether your goals consist of skippering charters, competing in regattas, or sailing around the world, we invite all ladies and levels of experience to come along on our fun Puget Sound sailing adventures. The SSC Women’s Program is a fun opportunity for women to learn, experience, and sail together!
…I had my first overnight cruising experience and I made friends I’m still sailing with 2 years later. A great program! Karey J. -- SSC member since 2011
Women’s Racing Program
Summer racing programs at SSC are tons and tons of fun! Monday nights are spent racing in Sloop Tavern Yacht Club’s Ballard Cup and we are so proud of our all women J/105 team!
The women’s race team is coached by our sailing school instructor, Ramona. Ramona is a seasoned sailor and racer: she has participated in SSC’s race programs for years, races year round on another J/105, teaches ASA lessons for the Club and lead the women’s program for the last few years. Ramona is a great leader for the ladies race team and they are always welcoming new lady sailors onto their boat!
My favorite SSC memories are the women’s cruising trip to Port Townsend, women’s racing team for Ballard Cup 2013(girls rock!), and learning to race on a J/24 in 2008… Susan N. -- SSC member since 2007
