Leadership. Communication. Collaboration.
Sailing isn’t just a sport; it’s a life-changing experience that builds self-confidence, leadership skills, and strength. Women in Wind (WIW) cultivates alliances between people who identify as women in our community through the transformative experience of sailing. Sailing utilizes progressive skill building and a positive learning environment to empower women and girls through innovative, customized programs.
It’s an experience with lasting impact that includes personal challenges and time for reflection. In each session, participants lead, communicate, and learn from their peers, providing each student with opportunities for success.
