August 2013 Meeting

Photo credit: Nora FeddalOn August 13th, we’ll hear about the rich history and tradition of the largest women’s sailing event on Santa Monica Bay — the Women on the Water / Women at the Helm Regatta.

For example, did you know that the Robert Wilson Silver Loving Cup Perpetual Trophy has been presented to the winner of Woman on the Water every year since 1980?

The evening’s multi-media presentation will be hosted by the 2013 ASMBYC Women’s Sailing Coordinator, Sasha Zaripov, and will include a panel of past winners, new skippers, past regatta chairs, as well as owners who have generously lent their boats out to women skippers. This year’s WOW regatta is August 24-25 and WSA is one of the regatta sponsors. We hope this presentation will inspire you to get involved as a racer, as part of the race committee, or in the after-racing hospitality activities.
