WOW – Women on the Water Seminar This Sunday

As a benefit to your female customers throughout the GTA, WOW – Women on the Water will be hosted once again by The Store Mason's Chandlery on a Sunday 10am – 3pm for women only. The seminars cover such topics as anchoring, man-overboard procedures, docking  and knot tying.

WOW seminars are designed to be both educational and fun. The series is designed to teach women how to react to basic May Day situations such as shooting off flares; manoeuvring vessels in MOB situations; calling on the radio; and recognizing their positions. As well, basic boat handling skills such as how to dock; knot tying; mooring and anchoring are covered after lunch.

“The more informed women become and the more boating skills they acquire, the more fun they’ll have boating” says Lori Mason. “I am hoping that these WOW seminars will encourage more women to take on an active role in participating on their own boat’. 

Cost is $25 at the door and includes hand out material and a light lunch! Preregistration is required for each event.  Go to > seminars and events… for details.
