The conference gathers women sailors from around the Midwest to attend workshops, share trends, and network. This continuing education opportunity assists women who seek to improve their skills in the areas of safety, boat handling, maintenance, and seamanship.

This year our keynote speaker will be Renee Mehl, director of the Offshore Sail Training Squadron at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. One of four sailing programs at the academy, the OSTS provides offshore experiential leadership, seamanship, and navigation for midshipmen. A racer with over 27,000 miles on the water, Renee also oversees the annual Safety at Sea Seminar at the Naval Academy. Rene volunteered for the US Sailing Safety at Sea Committee and was appointed to the World Sailing Offshore Special Regulations committee for eight years.

The Midwest Women’s Sailing Conference has sold out all available spots every year. Registration opened in January of 2018. Join our mailing list for notifications.

We are a 501(c)3 educational organization.
