Third Annual May 17th, 2014


     homeMWSC Home Page

Our  format is always changing slightly to better fit the needs and preference of our attendees. This year we will have attendees gathering at
8:00am for a full continental breakfast with pastries, yogurt and fruit..

This year's Keynote address will be much longer and give Pam a chance to truly inspire all of us. This is before all of the classes by
internationally acclaimed world cruiser, Pam Wall.

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 20 different workshops from which to choose. Each class is a little longer to fit in even more information. 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 after classes in the evening, in the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center Windhover Room for a reception,
with a chance to meet and talk with Pam Wall, all of the women attendees, instructors and volunteers.

Classes and meals are included in the $135 Fee.  Maximum attendance is limited to the first 80 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. Please
note that although we have sold out every year, we are limiting the attendence this year to give each attendee more personal attention.

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.
