Get Started on Your Sailing Adventure

Preparedness equals confidence. The more you know, the more you will feel at ease and be able to make sound and wise decisions at sea.  Here are a few resources for women sailors (and their crew) to explore and bookmark!  From books about women sailors to links to women’s sailing associations, clubs and events.  Find them all in one place!  I love contributions and suggestions so, please, send them my way either via email or on facebook or instagram!

Follow "The Desert Sailor" from boatLUV on Youtube​

From Christmas light boat decorating to sailing the Atlantic on an Island Packet 40, to di-it-yourself-boat maintenance, I am The Desert Sailor based out of Lake Mead Marina. My #freesailboat "Swingin' Dixie has taught me a lot. I hope you can learn something from my mistakes or at least find them entertaining!
