I used to belong to a Yacht Club in Alameda, CA. We had a program where we advertised free sailing and sailing lessons
for women. Dubbed, "Women for Sail." The interested skippers then took the ladies out sailing and sometimes on the club overnight trips to other clubs in the Bay. It was a rousing success we met the girls/women and they got to check out the skippers with little to no further commitment. It worked for all and many of the ladies became club members, one of which even wound up as the club Admiral. Many of them stuck around and bought boats. A better way to meet than in a bar I think.
