Karen is inspiring for not letting the challenges of a career and parenting stop her from offshore adventures.

She took a one-year sabbatical to go sailing in their Hans Christian with her husband and eight year old. They explored Mexico and the South Pacific. Back at work as an Anesthesiologist, Karen feels she’s a different person for having taken this amazing break.

Linda Polverari

Linda is inspiring with how she’s pursued a serious love of fishing while enjoying Northwest cruising.

NW boating adventures have taken Linda 1,000’s of nautical miles including racing NORPAC in Barkley Sound. Linda loves to share her passion for fishing and does it from a sailboat, downriggers and all!

Cynthia Faw

Cynthia is inspiring with her willingness to learn to take over all captaining duties onboard their Beneteau,   enabling her and her husband to continue enjoying Northwest cruising.

An artist who captures the beauty from their boat, she has planned and directed group voyages in the Salish Sea and on charter yachts in the Caribbean.

Margaret Pommert

Margaret is inspiring for taking her love of sailing to higher levels, instructing others. And, as an engineer, she combines engineering skills with sailing to interest girls in science, technology, engineering and math.

Margaret has boated in places as varied as Vanuatu and the Inside Passage.  Both a US Sailing and ASA certified instructor and USCG Master, she leads Seattle Sailing Women’s group.

Lisa Cole

Lisa is inspiring for making a huge career change to seriously follow her passion of sailing.

Lisa sailed casually for years, and in her 40’s learned to skipper her own boat. Leaving a successful corporate career to get her Captain’s license she co-founded   SheSails Seattle, a local company focused on women teaching women to sail.
