Each year we try to bring educational and accessible content to the Midwest Women’s Sailing Conference. Shelly Galligan provided both in abundance. Her “First Aid on the Water” class was packed with material. Medical information can be dense and daunting, however Shelly’s insightful presentation style unpacked it for all kinds of boaters. Participants laughed and actually asked questions. Shelly put them at ease with the medical issues that may arise on the water, as well as their own ability to respond. Sailors returning to MWSC 2018 will know we listened to them. We asked Shelly back.
