How She Sails: Julia

I met a sailor who asked me to accompany him in a few sailing series. Later I crewed on a boat for the Wednesday afternoon series. The sailor became my partner and then husband and we bought a boat which we successfully campaigned in a number of racing series. I then sailed our boat in the Women's twilight with the best crew anyone could ask for.

By far the best part of sailing is the people you meet. I have friends all over the country from the sport.  We can see people once a year and mix with them like we saw them yesterday.

Please become a volunteer if you have the time. It is very rewarding while you are learning so much about Race Management. There are different tasks to learn which are very important especially when starting and finishing races and then keeping an eye on the fleets during the race/races.  Such a friendly atmosphere on the Committee Boat and I find it very rewarding

I love the independence I have as a sailor. I enjoy sailing interdependently and as part of a team. I have visited places I might not have gone to if it hadn't been for sailing. I'd love to sail every day if I could as it makes me feel calm and happy.

Sailing provides a wide range of ongoing new skills to develop as you progress through your different life stages. It also offers a lot of fun and challenges and active social engagement. These are all very important for a positive lifestyle and good mental health.

Absolutely, try it!  Do a sailing course!  Visit different clubs, become involved.  If you decide sailing is not for you, don’t shy away from joining a club; think about being involved in other ways.

The sailing community is full of interesting, fun and adventurous people and sailing is one of very few sports that you can actively participate in for your entire life. I would recommend anyone interested to get involved with a discover sailing program at their local club.

Connells Point Sailing Club

Connells Point Sailing Club held its first-ever She Sails program on Sunday the 26th of March with 7 women taking part under the guidance of two instructors and three volunteers. This was one of their two-day She Sails programs. The 2nd She Sails program was on the 2nd of April, which was a very uplifting and positive day.

How She Sails: Simone

I love being on the water - the conditions are always changing so no two races are ever the same. The people I have met through the sport have become life long friends.
