OWSA promotes opportunities for women to learn sailing through education and practical experience. Our members are business owners, artists, managers, lawyers, 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 no experience to experts. Our goal this year is to Engage, Encourage and Educate. Explore our website and learn how you can get on the water and access sailing opportunities in the Northwest.
