Support Women at the Helm:
Join Our Yacht Club Fundraising Campaign

We are the Women’s Yacht Club, committed to promoting nautical excellence, ocean preservation, and green practices while empowering women to take the helm. Our ambitious goal is to organize a Women’s Regatta in 2025 and establish an institute dedicated to women’s empowerment and sailing skills. To achieve this, we need your support to purchase a boat for competitive events and training.

As a non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Croatia, nestled within the world’s largest charter fleet and renowned as the most coveted nautical destination globally, our mission at Women Yacht Club is multifaceted.
Our Mission:
Promoting Nautical Excellence: We strive to uphold the highest standards of excellence within the nautical tourism segment, ensuring that Croatia maintains its reputation as a premier destination for maritime enthusiasts worldwide.
Ensuring Sustainability: Committed to safeguarding our oceans and marine ecosystems, we advocate for sustainable practices within the yachting industry, promoting environmental stewardship and responsible tourism.
Advancing Gender Equity: Central to our mission is the empowerment of women in male dominated industries. We aim to break down barriers and create equal opportunities for women to thrive and succeed in the maritime sector.
Founded in 2019, Women Yacht Club serves as a representative organization for the large nautical tourism segment in Croatia. Our mission extends beyond national borders, as we strive to build alliances worldwide and serve as a collective voice on issues affecting the industry.
Driven by our dedicated members and volunteers, our organization relies on funding from members and sponsors to support initiatives that benefit the entire yachting industry. Through regional and global committees, educational programs, and networking events, we work tirelessly to strengthen the promotion of Croatia as a nautical paradise and elevate the status of women in yachting.
