Are you a female sailor at Gosford Sailing Club?

The Gosford Sailing Club Sailing Academy has a number of training and racing opportunities  for female sailors looking to improve their skills, meet new people and enjoy their time out on the water.


During the month of May, Gosford held the first series of training sessions onboard Magic 25 Keelboats and hosted the 2022 Gosford SheSails Regatta. We hope to continue this event annually, providing more opportunity for female sailors to build experience and enjoy their time out on the water.

SheSails is designed to recognise all of the amazing female contributors to our sport, and to encourage women of all ages to enjoy sailing through organised activities at your local sailing club.

Whether you’re sailing for the first time, returning to the sport or are an active sailor there are a variety of social SheSails activities both on and off the water for you to get involved in. 

SheSails aims to: 

  • Promote and celebrate women and girls participation in the sport of sailing

  • Provide new and existing female sailors with the opportunity to enjoy activities at their local sailing club with like-minded people

  • Provide clubs with visual materials and case studies to help grow female participation in recreational and competitive sailing

  • Develop a platform to feature female-focused events and programs across the country
