OWSA has many opportunities for you to become involved. Here are just a few places for you to contribute:

  • A few minutes helping prep meals or cleanup after monthly OWSA meetings. (Just come on back to the Galley and ask how you can help.)
  • A few minutes talking to new and prospective members at our monthly OWSA meetings. (Just do it - Let's make them feel welcome.)
  • An evening hosting a Fireside at your home for new members. Don't worry, we supply the presenter. We just need hostesses. Contact for details.
  • A couple of hours crewing the OWSA booth at the Oregon Boat Show in January. Contact for details.
  • A few hours sailing and mentoring as an experienced sailor. Wednesday Night Sails (WNS) aren't just for new sailors. We need your experience. Sign up and join us.
  • A couple of hours or more helping to plan our Summer Picnic. Contact for details.
  • A couple of hours or more helping to teach our classes. Topics vary. Someone helped you gain your skills - this is a wonderful way to pay it back. Contact for details
  • One-day events like our Cool Maneuvers Docking Class (we'd love to have you on the Fender Crew)
  • Seasonal (Spring/Summer) work like being an Education Galley Gal, Education Gate Keeper, or Education Guppy. Contact for details.
  • Set Sail for a Cause returns each Fall, and we need your help to make it a success. If you are interested in being a part of the planning committee or would just like to learn more about this amazing event and how you might help, email Set Sail for a Cause.
  • Longer commitments like being on our OWSA Board.
