Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Sheesh! What a pain to have to experience that. You'd think that on a site like this, people would be less likely to be rude and negative...but I guess not. Too bad. Who needs that??
I wouldn't blame you for not participating anymore if that's the kind of feedback you get. Personally, being a woman, I love learning from women who've experienced what I'm getting ready to do. I understand women's perspectives easier than I do men's, usually. Not always, but usually. It's very nice to know there are women out there who have knowlegde in this area, and know how to share it. I hope you'll come back again. I'm new at this, never have even been on a sailboat until about 2 1/2 months ago. Am living on a 1983, S2-C11 sailboat. It's a racer, so isn't as broad as I would have preferred...but it's cozy. We're docked in Kemah, Texas, and now have to wait until the hurricane season is over before we go cruising. Too many things to fix on the boat before we take off.

How long have you been sailing? Do you live on a boat? Where? Where have you travelled?
Thanks for your post. I hope the men who do come on here will be polite, and interactive.

years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
