Three women sailors — Vanessa Williams, Debbie Roser and Radeen Cochran — have launched a new interactive Web site for female sailors at www.WmWAVES.com.

The Web site aims to bring women sailors together to share things of interest, from coping with worries and fears to suggestions on improving technical skills. The site also includes cautionary tales, health and fitness tips, and recipes.
