About the Stakeholders Summit

The US Sailing Stakeholders Summit provides opportunities for the leadership of sailing organizations to meet with the leadership of US Sailing to share ideas and perspectives about sailing within specific regions of the United States. We plan to create a roundtable environment between the attendees and the Board of Directors/US Sailing Leadership that fosters an exchange of ideas, brainstorming and ideation for the topics in the agenda. US Sailing will provide the moderator to facilitate discussion and offer a national perspective on some of the issues that face our industry. A boxed lunch and refreshments will be included.

  • When: November 13, 2021 - 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM
  • Where: Conanicut Yacht Club, Jamestown, RI
