The Day Sail Program is the backbone of WSA’s on-the-water activities. The program matches WSA crew members of various experience levels and interests with WSA skippers who volunteer their vessels to enjoy a day of sailing together. Most new sailors are attracted to the day sail program because of the hands-on experience with our skippers in a relaxed and easy going atmosphere. Even seasoned sailors participate to check out a different boat for a change or to get out on the water with friends.
The Cruise Program offers members an opportunity to experience overnight trips ranging from one night to more than a week. Cruises are typically to nearby, Southern California harbors or anchorages such as Redondo Beach, Paradise Cove, Dana Point, Long Beach and San Diego, or islands such as Catalina and Santa Cruz. Sometimes cruises may go into Mexico and beyond. Joining a cruise is a great way to get to explore the Southern California waters and get to know other WSA members and skippers while gaining new experience.
The cruise schedule is set for the whole year in early January giving members time to plan for the longer trips they want to participate in.
WSA Sailors love to challenge themselves and their boats, some competitively and some just for the fun of it. The women and men of WSA are no exception. So, whether you want your name on that regatta trophy or just some bragging rights back at the club, WSA is a great way to get in the game.
