January 2023

Join us in congratulating our IWFCT member Laura Grondin for being one of the three finalists for the US Sailing's 2022 Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year. 

Laura Grondin’s success as a skipper in the J/70 class earned her a spot as one of this year’s finalists. Grondin helmed her way to first place at the J/70 East Coast Championships and Davis Island J/70 Regatta, as well as the top female helm at the J/70 European Championship. Grondin also had success in the Melges 24 class, placing fourth at the Melges 24 World Championship.  

What an exceptional performance and such well deserved selection.  Laura once again proves that women can be leaders in anything they set their mind to.  Laura is a successful woman running a global company, raising a family and leading the way in this tough sport.  

IWFCT congratulates Laura Grondin for being one of the "best in the US" and for being one of three finalist of the US Sailing's 2022 Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year.

IWF members connecting globally during travels.

Our IWFCT member Peggy Boissoneau took the opportunity to connect with IWFUK members during her travel to London during the Holiday season.  Despite the busy time of the year, our IWF members were able to connect and meet at the Royal Academy in the Burlington House Piccadilly.

They  had much to share with conversations across a wide array of topics and finding common topics and interests.  This was the start to a long newly found global friendship and sisterhood that will continue for years to come.

We encourage all our IWFCT members to reach out to local IWF Forums whenever they travel.  Our sister Forums will welcome you with open arms, introduce you to members and invite you to local events.
