Since 2008, over 600 women have attended WOW boating events.
On Saturday June 22nd WOW is having it’s 3rd annual WOW Regatta (for women only). So if you have never raced before or race all the time, this will be The Regatta to attend. Women racing women; bring your boat or crew with someone else, racing cost is $25 per person which includes a goodie bag. There will be a crew bank posted on Facebook. We will wrap up the evening with a dinner and awards presentation to which everyone (guys included) are invited, RSVP required cost TBA. There is a limit of 10 boats, so sign up fast!!!
“We’ve had so much fun at the 2011 & 2012 regattas introducing so many women to racing, and helping forge new relationships among women boaters” states Mason, ‘it’s going to be a great 2013 regatta!”
