Set Sail for a Cause, presented by Oregon Women’s Sailing Association (OWSA), is a fun event for the whole family that emphasizes boat-handling skills and cooperation rather than competition.
We welcome everyone from first-timers to novices to expert sailors. Since the inception of this non-competitive, family-friendly event in 2000 (formerly Sail for the Cure®), over $300,000 has been raised for various causes. This year, net proceeds will be donated to support programs for the young women of the Portland-area Sea Scouts.
To make our donation as large as possible, we need the help of everyone in the sailing community. Introduce new sailors to the joy of being on the water or grab your sailor friends. Bring them on board for a day of fun in support of the next generation of women sailors. Help us gather people together to celebrate our gratitude for each other, and our collective love of sailing.
