Endless Networking

An All-Star cast of sailing leaders representing every aspect of the sport will be assembled with these top initiatives:

Connect – Have meaningful discussions with sailors representing other interests in the sport, types of sailing, and industries. Attendees observe and reflect on the common issues they share, and how they can work together to achieve better results.

Discover – Innovations in technology, new program opportunities, collaboration amongst communities

Grow – Your program, your regatta series, your membership, your bottom line, your rolodex, new friendships

Share your story in St. Pete Beach, FL – Are you trying to make change in sailing? What successes and challenges are you having while trying something new? US Sailing wants to hear from you!

“If you are interested in growing sailing at any level, get to this forum! You will find people who share your passion.”

"This is hands down one of the best forums each time. The diversity of topics, the caliber of people, and the energy of the attendees makes it a great experience."

"The large number of senior leaders in the sailing community provided an excellent environment to exchange ideas and information that will last far longer than the conference."

"Spending time with peers can never be underestimated and the SLF has always been educational but also gave me a platform to share knowledge. In 2020 hitting topics that affect all programming such as social media, protecting the environment and best practices makes this a "must go" on my calendar AND I brought a new staff member."

"The networking with other people in similar roles was invaluable. Walked away with as many good ideas from conversations in between the sessions as I did at the sessions."
