Sloop Tavern Yacht Club is excited to announce our 5th Annual Women at the Helm Race Series. The first in the series is Women at the Helm: Going the Distance on Saturday, July 20th, a typical buoy race with the goal of sending racers on a long course to maximize sailing time and fun! This year, after some feedback from the last few years; we have allowed ourselves some flexibility in the NoR if wind conditions change on the day of the race, so be sure to check the course at the committee boat that morning.

What makes Women at the Helm different than our other races? This series specifically requires a female-identifying or non-binary person to helm through the whole race. This doesn't mean only one person can helm; in fact, we encourage crews with several qualifying helmspeople to rotate through who is at the helm!

We are excited to announce that the raffle is back for a second year! Many thanks to the companies that have donated raffle prizes so far: Northwest Yacht Systems, Maiven Sailing, Seattle Sailing Club, and Fisheries Supply! Please check back here closer to race day for award and additional raffle information! 

We've got merch available here! The online store is only open until Monday, July 1st, so don't delay! Your order will be available for pick-up only at the Skipper's Meeting the night before the race and the awards ceremony after the race.
