Women’s Sailing is open to all women at Tampa Sailing Squadron. 

We share knowledge through monthly programs about all things sailing,
enjoy and build comradery and friendships,
and seek opportunities for sailing and crewing at the club. 

We meet monthly, usually on the first Saturday of each month, from 10am-12 noon.

We have several increasingly popular ANNUAL programs and activities:

·        “Share and Tell:  New Products and Favorite Gadgets”

·        Kayak Adventure – exploring the 2.5 mile Eco Trail in Apollo Beach

·        Christmas party - member hosted, festive, fun activities and covered dish.

We have 60+ women on our email list and are a very friendly, welcoming group. 
Most of our programs are planned and facilitated by our members. 
Women’s Sailing does not have fees or a budget.  We sponsor our own activities. 
And like a good sailor, we are resourceful, knowledgeable, fun, and creative! 
Come join us.
