Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Soooo if I used your name to minimize your accomplishments and try to make you feel unqualified to speak on a certain topic that's not a slam? Perhaps you regret this but wont own your mistake.

As sad above. Without knowing those women's history I would guess they were raised on the water by their parents. Like the Dutch girl that at 16 attempted to circumnavigate but lost her boat in SE Asia. It's easier I you were raised with your father teaching you sailing. I had only ever been on a boat, not even a sailboat until I was 16 once, fishing on a lake in Iowa, an at 16 a ferry across the English Channel. If I had co parents I probably would have circ. by now.
