We've created this list of useful links to help women sailors learn about other women's sailing organizations around the country, women's sailing education opportunities, women only regattas, and about businesses who support women's sailing and racing. Are you a business? Please contact us if you would like to offer WOW sailors a discount at your business, have an event of interest to our members or would like to sponsor an event at your business or at one of our member clubs.


Many of our events are photographed by professional photographers Mary Alice Fisher and Andrea Watson. Please visit their websites to view or purchase photos.
