WSC Holiday Camps #SheSails
The July holiday camps were run by our incredible instructors, all local ladies who shaped every attendee with their amazing skills.
SheSails is an Australian Sailing campaign designed to recognise all of the amazing female contributors to our sport, and to encourage women to enjoy sailing through organised activities at your local sailing club. SheSails aims to:
- Promote and celebrate female participation in the sport of sailing
- Provide new and existing female sailors with the opportunity to enjoy activities at their local sailing club with like-minded people
- Provide clubs with visual materials and case studies to help grow female participation in recreational and competitive sailing
- Develop a platform to feature female-focused events and programs across the country
