Women Who Sail Meet Up

On Saturday, October 22, Women Who Sail is having a reunion meeting at the pool at La Cruz Inn that will include all the original speakers from the very first meet-up there in February 2014. Charlotte Kaufman of the ill-fated Hans Christian 36 Rebel Heart founded Women Who Sail in 2011. As reported on ‘Lectronic Latitude in the spring of 2014, Rebel Heart was scuttled at sea after the Kaufmans’ 1-year-old daughter became ill and had to be rescued during the family’s Pacific Crossing. 

National Guardsmen came to the aid of Pacific Puddle Jumper Rebel Heart on April 3, 2014.

Women Who Sail is a not-for-profit organization with more than 9,000 members worldwide. All women boaters (both sail and power) are invited to attend the free meet-up on the 22nd from 2 to 5 p.m. by the pool at La Cruz Inn in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, 14 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. Free wine will be available until it runs out, courtesy of Katrina Liana of Marina Riviera Nayarit, and there will be a cash bar, taco stand, and many door prizes. The inn is just a couple of blocks from the marina. Speakers will include Charlotte Kaufman, Michelle Williams, Eugenie Russell, Tamiko Willie, Pat Henry, Judy Jensen and Katrina Liana.
