Our  format will have attendees gathering at 8:00am for a full continental breakfast with pastries, yogurt and fruit..
This year's Keynote address will be presented before classes by internationally acclaimed sailor, Nancy Erley.. 
There will be two workshop periods in the morning and two workshop periods in the afternoon with lunch served in-between.  

There will be approximately 24 different workshops from which to choose. Each class is a little longer this year to fit in even more information.

The entire group will gather at 5pm in the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center Windhover Room for a reception, with a chance to meet and talk with all of the women attendees, instructors and volunteers.

Classes and meals are included in the $125 Fee.  Attendance is limited to the first 100 paid registrations, 18 years of age and older.

There will also be an incredible silent auction and a raffle going on all day, with VERY special items for you to bid on. Our sponsors donate some very desireable items.

Complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water, soda and snacks will be available all day to attendees.
