Women at the Helm

NorthPoint Yacht Charter's Midcoast Sailing Collaborative for Women

Designed by and for women to learn basic sailing skills, NorthPoint Yacht Charters offers Women at the Helm, a day program providing hands on experience to gain confidence and improve maritime skills in a fun, relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere.  Women at the Helm works with sailors at all levels of experience to help women have the confidence to be take charge skippers by working on points of sail, sail trim, navigation, piloting, helmsmanship, seamanship, anchoring, safety, man overboard drills and much more.

People often cannot afford the time or expense of taking a week long teaching cruise. This program schedules affordable day sails out of Camden with flexible schedules, small group dynamics with an experienced Captain and teacher aboard Sagacious, a well-maintained 34', Bill Shaw designed, Pearson sloop.

Please contact Northpoint Yacht Charters for dates you would like to go sailing.

Daytrip and overnight can be arranged. Four people are needed for a day trip and three are needed for an overnight at the individual prices. The boat and instructor can be booked for custom charters.


Up to four hour sails with instruction: $150/hr (2 hr minimum with up to 4 passengers)
