Linda Weinstock of Island YC in Alameda writes about the Northern California Women's Sailing Seminar on September 20-21: "Please join us for an exciting, one of a kind weekend event. It is all about women teaching women how to sail. It is fun, relaxing, educational and inspiring. Top women sailors volunteer as instructors during classroom and on-the-water workshops. Sponsors donate valuable items for lunchtime and cocktail hour raffles. Courses range from Beginner through Offshore Cruising with subjects such as Advanced Sail Trim, Racing, Spinnaker, Navigation and Boat Ownership in between. Many women return year after year to hone their skills. Registration is online at www.womenssailingseminar.com. The discounted 'Early Bird' registration fee is $225 for the weekend until August 31, when it increases to $250. The price includes continental breakfasts, lunches, no-host cocktail party, one raffle ticket, class handouts, visor, and a bag filled with goodies from our sponsors."
