The Board is made up of five Flag Officer positions (Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, Secretary, and Treasurer) and the remaining board members are Directors.
Shancy Holland, Commodore
Shancy started sailing in the 90's on Lake Minnetonka when an opportunity to race came her way. She joined OWSA in 2009 and has served in a variety of volunteer roles supporting technology for OWSA and has served on the Board for the past two years. She loves being on the water and gets out as often as possible on her Catalina 22. In 2019, she had the opportunity to race on the Columbia crewing for Karen Anderson on Bad Habit.
Jen Wiseman, Vice Commodore
Jen didn't grow up sailing, but always knew she wanted to experience sailing. When she joined OWSA in October of 2017 all of that changed. In 2018 she served as the Class Registrar and also participated in the BOAST program. She learned to sail that year and will never look back. In 2019 Jen stepped up to serve as the Education Director. Currently, she fills two rolls, Education Director and Vice Commodore. While she is looking forward to passing Education on to the right candidate, she is grateful to be of service to such an amazing sailing community.
Delona Lang, Rear Commodore
Being raised on the water, I have always enjoyed boating and especially sailing. I have been involved with OWSA for four years now and have served as the Membership Chair as well as Vice Commodore, Commodore and now Rear Commodore. I have participated in most of the events over the last few years and enjoy getting out on the water every opportunity I can.
Liv Ormond, Secretary
I'm Liv 'Leev' Ormond and have been sailing since 2002 and joined OWSA in 2009 and immediately volunteered as Treasurer. Since then I have been on the Board all but one year and am now the Secretary of this wonderful non-profit. I also offer my boat s/v Mischief for WNS, Beer Can Races, fundraising and First Mate Training. I am now handing over the Skipper Vetting Program and look forward to more chances to help OWSA, a wonderful organization that is my greatest passion, next to sailing itself!
Tanya Seely, Treasurer
I have lived most of my life in the Pacific Northwest. I have always loved being around water. Growing up if I was not on horseback, I was in my neighbor's swimming pool! Later I spent my summers with friends on the Willamette river water skiing and wake boarding. Most recently I have discovered sailing. I was enchanted so I looked for ways to be able to continue sailing. I learned about OWSA while shopping at West Marine. I thought that OWSA was exactly what I was looking for and I joined soon after. I have been an OWSA member for three years now.
