NWWB Notes: NO MEETING IN DEC. – Women’s Day Panel Info – A Treat For Jan. Meeting

NO MEETING IN DECEMBER

Due to colds and busy schedules all around, we are NOT having a meeting or gathering of Northwest Women in Boating in December – again, next Monday, no meeting. We hope you all stay relaxed, in good spirits and enjoy the season.

SEATTLE BOAT SHOW INSPIRATIONAL PANEL ON WOMEN’S DAY:

EXPANDING YOUR LIFE THROUGH BOATING

The Boat Show is coming up in January. Women’s Day, allowing free attendance for women, is Monday, January 27th. We will be sponsoring an impressive panel of inspiring women and want you all there supporting this event. So put it on your calendars 5pm to 7pm (followed by a social gathering at Pyramid Ale House). We’ll be sending out information about the participants on the panel shortly. Come, bring friends, and be inspired.

JANUARY 20TH MEETING NOT TO BE MISSED, MEET SOME AMAZING WOMEN

We have a treat for you in January. You will meet and enjoy unique and exciting tales from Rachel Emery and Carol Sorbie, both round-the-world cruisers and members of the first all-women team competing in the TRANSPACIFIC YACHT RACE to Hawaii. We have some amazing women in the Northwest who have built character, challenged themselves and triumphed in on-the-water adventures. Northwest Women in Boating provides an opportunity for us to meet them, hear their experiences and learn from them. Rachel and Carol will inspire boaters of all types. Mark January 20th on your calendars and invite other gals to enjoy it with you.

NWWB Notes: Meeting Mon. Nov. 18 Open To Husbands And Significant Others 6 spots left – Enjoy Favorite Places In SE Alaska

RSVP required (6 spots left) for this special trip up and through S.E. Alaska by a couple women who know the territory well. And, for this interesting program we are welcoming husbands and significant others who might like to accompany you.

Come and enjoy a discussion of each of their 5 favorite places on the way to and in S.E. Alaska shared by Elsie Hulsizer and Mary Campbell. And, those of you who’ve been there, plan to share, as well. 

When Elsie Hulsizer and her husband Steve set off on their fifth trip to SE Alaska in 2013, they were determined to explore parts of SE Alaska they had never seen before. Blessed by the best summer in Alaska in 30 years, they found not just new destinations but new (sunny) perspectives on the old ones.

Elsie is the author of  Glaciers, Bears and Totems: Sailing in Search of the Real Southeast Alaska and Voyages to Windward: Sailing Adventures on Vancouver Island’s West Coast

Mary Campbell has been sailing and cruising seriously for the last 25 years.  Her first sailboat was a Tom Colvin-designed aluminum junk rigged schooner that she single-handed back from Glacier Bay in 2008.

Longing to return to Alaska, she finally headed north again in her current boat, a Cascade 36 sloop, sailing from Olympia to Seward in May and June of 2015.  She spent July and August 2015 exploring the Kenai peninsula, crossing Cook Inlet to visit the Katmai reserve, and cruising Prince William Sound.  The boat wintered over in Seward.

In 2016 Mary brought it from Seward through Prince William Sound and back across the Gulf of Alaska to SE Alaska.  After 6 more weeks tucking into various anchorages in SE Alaska, the boat ended up in Petersburg where she wintered over.

Date: Monday, November 18th

Time: 7:00pm – till 9:00 pm or so (Hors d oeuvres, snacks, wine, etc. are welcomed but not required. We enjoy socializing after the presentation.)

Location: 1900 N Northlake Way, #233 Seattle, WA 98103

We meet at the Northwest Marine Trade Association conference room, 1900 N. Northlake Way, #233. Park at Fisheries Supply and go into the courtyard beside Fisheries Supply and up the stairs, turn right and we are the furthest door on the left. (Located in the courtyard beside Fisheries Supply – UP THE STAIRS AND DOWN THE WALKWAY)
