Lake Pontchartrain Women's Sailing Association

lpwsa_logo_2012.jpgDear Sailors, 

We are the women of the Lake Pontchartrain Women’s Sailing Association.  We are the only sailing group for women that draw members from all the clubs on Lake Pontchartrain, as well as women who are not affiliated with any yacht club.  If you are a sailor, or a wanna-be sailor, we invite you to join our club.

Our membership consists of women, men and juniors—anyone who shares our goal to increase women’s participation in sailing.

We host a hospitality table, every Wednesday night at New Orleans Yacht Club, to connect new people with skippers who need crew for Wednesday Night racing.  We have placed dozens of men and women on sailboats this year. Some have made new friends, and some became valuable crew, some have even bought their own boats, putting more sailors on the water.  This is how we increase our numbers, one sailor at a time.

Several times during the year we hold educational sessions to help new people learn sailing skills.  In past years we have sponsored match racing clinics, GPS seminars, knot tying classes, and basic diesel seminars.  This year, we will continue with these activities.  We will also concentrate on refinishing and rigging our Flying Scot, Hull # 245.  Like most sailing clubs on the Gulf Coast, we are rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina.

We invite anyone who shares our goals to participate in our activities and join our club.  Membership is $50 per year, $25 for juniors
