The Halifax Sailing Association’s new Women’s group – the Windward Women – are hosting the 1st Annual Breast Cancer Regatta as a fundraiser for local breast cancer non-profit service providers. Racing will be on and around the Intra-Coastal Waterway, locally known as the Halifax River, between the Orange Avenue Bridge and the Dunlawton Avenue Bridge. Access to the water is available at HSA and at the Bethune Point Park boat ramp, just to the north of HSA. Separate courses will be held for Portsmouth and One-Design classes.

The Women of HSA had their first meet and greet on Saturday, April 16th. It was a big success! Nine women showed up and had a great time getting to know each other. They discussed their desire to sail more often, so at the next “meeting” they hope to be able to go for a sail together.
