WSA’s skippers are essential to our organization. Our skippers generously offer to take WSA members out on their boats for on-the-water sailing opportunities such as day sails, cruises and clinics. Our members benefit from the wisdom and experience of our skippers, while getting to practice their skills, and meet other member sailors.
