Women Sailing on the Columbia
Organized in 1994 by local women sailors, OWSA promotes women’s sailing through education and practical experience. Our members are business owners, artists, managers, lawyers, clerks, stay-at-home moms, writers and educators — name a profession, talent, or interest, and you will find an OWSA member in that field. Our members have all levels of sailing experience, from newbies to experts. Joining OWSA gives you access to sailing opportunities throughout the Northwest. At any given time we also have friends and members out sailing the deep blue, blogging, posting and sharing their adventures with us here on the Columbia.
