Women At The Helm

Empowering Women To Take The Helm

What is Women At The Helm? 

Women At The Helm is a yearly sailing regatta for dinghy and keelboat racing in which all boats are captained by women. The event which has now been running for the last 3 years, was created to make female helms the norm and increase female participation and progression in sailing. Women At The Helm encourages women to be in leadership positions and inspire other women to take charge on and off the water. The event also motivates women to set an annual sailing goal for example moving from crew to helm. 

 

Women At The Helm & Sustainability 

A key focus of Women At The Helm is sustainability and making the event as environmentally friendly as possible. Women At The Helm won the Clean Regattas Platinum Award in 2019 and aim to win it again this year with ECO friendly and reusable signs and no single use plastic or unnecessary printing. Guests will also be encouraged to arrive at the event using public transport, carpooling or cycling.
