Women's Sailing


The women's sailing group, Starry Sirens, is open to all women at Tampa Sailing Squadron.  We share knowledge through monthly programs about all things sailing, enjoy and build comradery and friendships, and seek opportunities for sailing and crewing at the club. 

We meet monthly, usually on the first Saturday of each month, from 10am-12 noon.

We have several increasingly popular ANNUAL programs and activities:

·        “Share and Tell:  New Products and Favorite Gadgets”

·        Kayak Adventure – exploring the 2.5 mile Eco Trail in Apollo Beach
                                         or kayak at E.G. Simmons Conservation Park in Ruskin

·        Christmas party - member hosted, festive, fun activities and covered dish.

Women's Sailing now has access to 3 Sunfish sailing boats and a Mutineer for sailing enjoyment, education and racing.  If you are interested, please contact me to discuss.

We have 60+ women on our email list and are a very friendly, welcoming group. 
Most of our programs are planned and facilitated by club members. 
Come join us.

January 4

Eckerd College "Search and Rescue" (ECSAR) is excited to come present to Tampa Sailing Squadron.  Justin Quick, Instructor for Training and Operations, will give a 30 min. presentation on who they are, what situations they are capable of handling, opportunities that they provide to their students, and how they are funded (including the summer camps and sailing classes they run).  Then he will turn the floor over to two of their students for Q&A.  During Q&A, Justin will also be happy to talk about programs beyond ECSAR such as their sailing classes.  

For more information on their sailing program and opportunities, please reach out to Renee Registrar, director of the program.
