3rd Annual Channel Islands Women’s Sailing Association Adventure Sail Day

June 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Mystic Cruzar

Channel Islands Women’s Sailing Association (CIWSA) is hosting AdventureSail Day for girls ages 9-14 who are interested in sailing.

Central Coast Ocean Adventures Foundation, operators of the tall ship Mystic Whaler, is proud to be working with CIWSA, along with the Channel Islands Maritime Museum (CIMM) and the Channel Islands Yacht Club (CIYC) to provide a full-day of female empowerment, history, and sailing!

The goal of the AdventureSail Day is to introduce young girls to new experiences on the water and to female role models in the maritime industry. The day’s program will include the history of women in sailing, teamwork and chain of command aboard a tall ship, sensing the wind and other sailing basics, environmental stewardship, opportunities to continue sailing, and potential maritime careers.

As they arrive Saturday morning, each girl receives a goody bag, sailing-related swag, and a commemorative t-shirt. They will spend the morning in three short programs at CIMM, the Mystic Whaler, and CIYC. In the afternoon, they will apply what they’ve learned and go sailing. Most will sail aboard the tall ship Mystic Whaler, and others will sail aboard private sailboats with volunteer skippers and crews. After sailing, CIYC will host a buffet lunch including a debrief of the day and ideas for the future. Throughout the day participants will interact with women recreational sailors and women who work in the marine or science world.

This is a free event, graciously funded by CIWSA.
