US Sailing Invites Members for the Next “Crew Meeting” Discussing SLF 2025

BRISTOL, RI. (February 28, 2024) – US Sailing, the sport’s national governing body, is proud to return with another quarterly, virtual office hours session called Crew Meetings, inviting US Sailing members and staff leaders to meet and discuss the latest topics in sailing.

On Tuesday, March 26 from 3-4pm ET, the fourth Crew Meeting will be a special meeting to provide your thoughts on topics you’d like covered at US Sailing’s Sailing Leadership Forum in 2025.

The Sailing Leadership Forum, US Sailing’s flagship event, serves as a platform that unites leaders across various sectors of our sport. Attendees include individuals involved in sail training and education, yacht club and sailing organization management, racing associations encompassing both one-design and handicap classes, as well as race officials and industry professionals. Over three days, leaders and innovators in the sport will assemble for an all-inclusive learning and networking experience including over 45 breakout sessions, five keynote speeches from inspiring figures, and over 30 sponsors and exhibitors for attendees to sample.

It is important that these events provide learning and insights on the topics important to you and your sailing organization, so we are starting our schedule development with your ideas and wishes.

During the Crew Meeting, participants will be broken out into breakout rooms (selected during registration) to share ideas within a particular subject area. Those breakout groups are:

  • Accessibility and Inclusion
  • Keelboat and Powerboat Schools
  • Community Sailing
  • High Performance Sailing and Coaching
  • Racing and One Design Sailing
  • Offshore Sailing
  • Race Administration
  • Education Programs and Training
  • Leadership and Governance

If you have more ideas outside of that topic, don’t worry, we’ll happily collate them during the session.

We look forward to seeing you there and are excited to have our members be an integral part of making this event another huge success.
