Lake Pontchartrain Women's Sailing Association Scholarship

Lake Pontchartrain Women's Sailing Association

Sailing For Women, By Women in NOLA

The Lake Pontchartrain Women’s Sailing Association is the only sailing group for women that draws members from all the clubs across Lake Pontchartrain, as well as women who are not affiliated with any yacht club in the New Orleans area. If you are a sailor or want to learn to sail, LPWSA invites you to become a member.

Our membership consists of women, men, and juniors who share the goal to increase female participation in sailing. Through the LPWSA network, numerous members have been placed as crew on sailboats based in New Orleans, Louisiana and the greater gulf coast. Members have made new friends, become valuable crew, and some have even gone on to skipper their own sailboats and give sailing lessons. Benefits of LPWSA membership include:

  • Access to Femme Fatale, the LPWSA club boat
  • Crew opportunities at New Orleans Wednesday Twilight Races
  • Participation in Flying Scots Races with Southern Yacht Club
  • Educational seminars and hands-on workshops with expert sailors
  • Invitation to members-only sailing and social events

LPWSA invites anyone that shares the LPWSA goals to participate in club activities and become a member. Membership is $75 per year, $25 for juniors under 18 years. If you are interested in becoming a member and would like to join a LPWSA sailing event please contact us.
