The Sailing Leadership Forum is back! This original US Sailing biennial event offers a unique experience for all types of sailors to connect on important and relevant issues on all aspects of our sport.
Connect. Discover. Grow.
Leaders from sail training and education, yacht club and sailing organization management, race officials, and industry professionals will meet and learn from one-another in the surroundings of this spectacular South Florida venue. The Forum will offer keynote speaker presentations and focused group sessions on a wide range of topics such as Growing the Sport, Developing Programs, Marketing & Communications, Administration & Management, Regattas & Racing, and Rules & Officials. The Sailing Leadership Forum will feature lively and fun social events, hands-on activities, exhibitor displays and demonstrations, pre- and post- forum clinics and seminars for instructor certification, race management seminars, Safety at Sea Seminars, and much more. If you missed out on the Sailing Leadership Forum in 2016 or 2014 or inspired to keep the momentum going strong and advance these critical conversations, meet us in St. Pete Beach and bring a friend!
