Women’s Conference 2023

Quick Details

Student price per person

Join us for a one-day Women’s Conference in Rhode Island to meet fellow female boaters and enjoy an introductory taste of some of our courses!

Our women’s sailing program is exclusively for women, by women. While many sailing schools have a women’s program with a man teaching the course, there is a special thing that happens when you have a lady instructor instead. Comfort zones enlarge, questions flow more readily, and a stress-free environment is created.

Since 2010, we’ve invited women to take sailing lessons in an All-Women environment. We know from experience that women tend to approach learning around boats in a different way. Being among ourselves sometimes helps us feel more comfortable. Being an ASA-certified school with a number of female instructors, we have the infrastructure and experience to support learning in a way “that fits.” With five lady instructors we have the largest group of women sailing mentors in the northeast. (And did you know Narragansett Sailing School is owned by a woman as well?)

Whether you’d like to simply get into sailing or prepare to go cruising, we can offer a path to not only build and improve your skills, but also your confidence. Whether your goal is to become a competent First Mate or to captain your own yacht, we can get you there.

Topics to be Discussed

Please note: these topics may change, depending on instructor and space availability

Participants will rotate in groups through 1.5-hour sessions on topic of choice, and together we’ll enjoy conversation and comradery over a catered lunch.

Should you find a topic you would like to explore further, we’ll have sign ups available for our in-depth, one-to-two-day courses (including a 10% discount for signups the day of the conference!).

Women’s Program Instructors

We are blessed with lady instructors who LOVE sailing, and have the skills to match the passion!
