Women Rule Thursdays

from Janet Geisberger

You may have heard, Women’s Racing has moved to Thursday evening this season. More dates to race!

Our goal is to increase participation in racing with women at the National and have at least 8 boats on the start line.

To participate in the Women’s Racing series all you need is a woman on the helm and a 50% female crew.  Yes, you can take some guys along.

All sizes of boats are welcome and we will be sailing PHRF.  This is a great opportunity to either try racing for the first time or to continue to build on your previous racing experience by sailing each week in a wide variety of conditions.  Racing is a great way to hone your sailing skills.

Given the change of weekday you may need some help to build a crew or find a boat, so drop me an email janet.geisberger@ipc.on.ca letting me know what you are looking for.  I will try match you up with either crew or a boat before the start of the season.

Looking forward to seeing you on the start line.
