Sailing organizations across the nation have been wrestling with the question of how to encourage more women to sail. STYC faced this issue head-on and created two Women at the Helm races in 2020, in the midst of Covid!
This year marks the third season of Women at the Helm where a person who identifies as female MUST be the primary helmsperson. The rest of the crew can be any mix of people, but skipper needs to identify as female. This race is modeled after our Fall Regatta in terms of format, using fixed marks for up to three short distance races in one day.
STYC members are able to enter at no cost, other boats will be charged $35.
