Leslie Goldsmith, Program Director

My first sailing season with OWSA was in 2014 and I have loved the experience of sailing on the Columbia on Wednesday Night Sails, meeting new people and gaining more confidence in my sailing skills. I grew up sailing in Buzzard's Bay, near Cape Cod, in small boats and overnight cruising on my dad's sloop. I am a recently retired preschool teacher. My husband Reed and I moved to Portland in 2011 to be near our children and grandchildren. I am excited to join OWSA's Board as Program Director.

Katie Phillips, Social/Membership Director

Katherine started sailing when she was 24 years old and got her first sailboat; a 18' Hunter. She completed her first sailing class at Willamette Sailing Club. Katherine joined OWSA in 2012.

She participates regularly in the Wednesday Night Sails. Katherine recently completed the First Mate Program. She enjoys crewing on different boats at Portland Yacht Club, Set Sail for a Cause, Mauna Elliott & SYSCO races. She just started volunteering with the SYSCO race events.


Leeta Anderson, Operations Director

I have always been a water baby, but growing up in landlocked Utah meant skiing was a better bet than boats. In last 5 years that I've jumped into the sailing community and joined OWSA 3 years ago for Wednesday night sails. After taking the OWSA racing class, I started racing 2 years ago. There is no faster way to develop skills than to be out on a race! This year, I plan to crew on the Offshore race to Victoria in May.

This is my first all-in volunteer position with OWSA, and I hope I'll be able to help get more women out on boats. I'm looking forward to another great year on the water with this awesome group.
