Park City Sailing Women Series & Q & A With Barkow

The Park City Sailing Association is known to have sailed on Jordanelle for more than 10 years. The club has seen massive growth during that period. Casey Marsh, the association representative said they are totally focused to increase women’s participation. He said that their firm is at the Jordanelle for a long period, but it’s mostly dominated by men. Hence, they want to ensure that there are some women on the water too. Therefore, they are trying to organize a program which is suitable for any level. There would be some small lessons along with the involvement of some social aspects. The first lesson would be out from 6 to 8 pm which would be on the boats. Thereafter, they would be back at the picnic spot at the new building for some social hour.

Marsh also said that they would have Sally Barkow come out on this Wednesday. Barkow is a female Olympic sailor and also a part of the Volvo Ocean Race team. She is good and leads the charge as far as women empowerment is concerned. There cannot be any other sailor who would be perfect to involve other women. The Volvo Ocean Race is a yacht race across the world; Sally Barkow would take part in the Q&A in water lessons. Barkow has raced with the Olympics nearly for ten years and then moved on to the Volvo Ocean racing. It is indeed a large event.
