5th Annual Midwest Women’s Sailing Conference
May 16, 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Milwaukee Community Sailing Center
1450 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr., Milwaukee, WI 53202
The conference gathers women sailors from around the Midwest to attend workshops, share trends and network. This continuing education opportunity assists women to improve their skills in the areas of safety, boat handling, maintenance and seamanship. Teamwork and leadership are both significant elements of sailing.
This year our keynote speaker is Katie Pettibone. A lifelong sailor, she has raced around the world. Her coaching of the all-women’s team for Oman’s participation in the Sail Arabia Tour is life-changing for all sailors in the region. Her current endeavor is The Rising Tide Leadership Institute. It is focused on developing female leaders. http://www.4risingtide.org/
