Third Annual May 11th, 2013


     homeMWSC Home Page

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 racer and sailor, Betsy Alison. 
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 21 different workshops from which to choose. Each class is a little longer this year to fit in even more information. A new option has a couple of the classes spanning over two class periods. This is designed to give enough time for your instructor to give a more complete picture of the subject at hand.

The entire group will gather at 5:30 pm 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.  Maximum attendance is limited to the first 100 paid registrations, 18 years of age and older. But it could be limited a little more by the choice of classes. Please register early to guarantee your first choice of classes.

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.
