Happy Easter everyone!
We have reached the tough decision to retire WOW Women On the Water after years of seminars, demonstrations and regatta’s! We hope that everyone that participated had fun, camaraderie and maybe even learned more about boating!
I want to thank the committee
2010 Sunset Sail
Mentor Racing at Mimico Cruising Club
for all their help over the years Donna Scott, Katrina Lewis, Kristina Gilbert, and Victoria Sutherland!
It’s time for me to go boating!
PS hopefully the Yacht Clubs will continue to promote women race teams and women skipper events going forward!
We are happy to announce that AWAY has been awarded Trip Advisor’s Green Leader Award, GOLD level.

We are happy to announce that the 6th WOW Regatta will be held Saturday June 18th hosted by Etobicoke Yacht Club again this year. We will be sending out registration forms shortly! If you are interested in receiving information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org You must be pre-registered by June 10th!
We look forward to another fun filled day starting at 9am registration in the club house at EYC, skippers meeting at 10 and off the dock by 11:30. There will be 2 starts this year, a spinnaker then a white sail (providing we have enough boats for spin class)
The day will end with a catered dinner at 6pm of Chicken Breast Forestier or a Portabella Mushroom stuffed with goat cheese, followed by the ever popular award presentations!
Always a fun filled day with women helping women on the water, WOW!
From your WOW organizers Katrina, Lori, Vicky & Kristina
Registration is now over (unless you are already crew on a boat!) we can not accept any more new applicants. We have 14 boats and 70 women racing this Saturday June 20, at Etobicoke Yacht Club!
We can’t wait to see you all again this year. Remember sign in starts at 9am and race instructions at 10am upstairs at EYC!

Ahoy women sailboat racers
We are now only 2 weeks from our Women On the Water (WOW) Regatta. We are happy to report that we have more than 12 boats registered and we will have a new spinnaker start this year! Our dinner and awards are included with your registration of $25 cash at sign in (sorry we do not have a debit machine). So if you were thinking about joining us with or without a boat, now is the time to do it as we are almost full and have to close registration by June 14 (or sooner) and overnight slips are filling up fast!! Sign in starts at 9am, instructions at 10, on the water by 11:30ish for 3 races (weather permitting), dinner at 6pm, awards at 7!
We would like to thank our price sponsors CMC Marine/Raymarine, Skippers’ Plan, The Store Fogh Boat Supplies, Ontario Sailing, Transat Marine/Spinlock, Alex Milne & Associates/Fortress, Ontario Sailor Magazine, Canadian Yachting Magazine, Port Credit Yacht Club (race committee) and Etobicoke Yacht Club the hosting club!
We are looking forward to another fun year at the 5th annual WOW Regatta 2015!
