Join Bold Betties and Colorado Watersports for ladies sailing lessons every Thursday evening from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

All ages and experience levels welcome.

Stop by after work and try something new! You can purchase a 1x and a 5x pack. It is the experience of CWS that it takes 5x to feel really confident in your abilities.  

You can jump in to a 5-pack any week- the class content rotates.

Each week is designed to cover a specific aspect of sailing for 20-30 minutes then the newbies will go get one with the boats while the returning students get on the water for hands-on lessons.

This is a great opportunity not only to learn how to sail, but also to meet like minded ladies and have lots of fun. Women make amazing sailors. Sailing is more about the brains than the brawn - finesse, good planning and precision timing are some of the attributes of an excellent sailor. The idea behind 'women only' sailing is to create a supportive and encouraging environment for women to learn. It's not that we don't love the boys (!), but men and women both learn, and make decisions, in different ways and paces. From our experience this is a very effective way for women to learn how to sail.

Itinerary Disclaimer


While it is our intention at Bold Betties to adhere to the event as described, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. Due to the nature of Bold Betties events, adventuring and travel can be unpredictable. Our itinerary overview is a general guide regarding the event and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited or encountered. These changes can be made with regards to safety, attendee capabilities, time constraints, weather and various other reasons. You are solely responsible for arriving to the meeting place on time. In the event of a delay, it is up to you to make alternative arrangements. Any additional costs incurred is your responsibility. Refunds will not be given due to missed connections, canceled flights, weather, or any other delays or unforeseen circumstances. Allow yourself extra time to arrive safely to the meeting place so that everyone leaves on time. Please see the cancelation/refund policy.
