Sailing Conference Aims to Boost Women's Skills and Health


The 15th annual Women on the Water Week will be held at The Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda, in the British Virgin Islands, October 20 to 27. The event features shoreside activities and plenty of on-the-water sailing instruction from world-renowned experts, including Betsy Alison, Martha Parker, and Pam Wall.

In addition to a good time, the event also supports a good cause: The yacht club will donate 10 percent of all the week's proceeds to various organizations that promote women's health, welfare, and medical research.
