Volunteerism is the wind in OWSA's Sails.  The wide variety of programs offer opportunities to teach, lead, and learn new skills.  Our talented members volunteer their time and energy to run the programs offered to our membership.  Not only do members benefit, but volunteerism is extended to the broader sailing community as well.

We appreciate our membership support, time and heart, because you make OWSA possible. OWSA is an all volunteer organization, we have no paid employees and we rely on you to contribute your time and energy to one of our many volunteer roles we need to fill.  Which opportunity most interests you?
