Re: Is Sailing Sexist?
.... I'm not sure how all of this relates to the self-proclaimed and self-evident bigger, stronger tougher half of a boating couple staying planted behind the wheel and nudging the throttle while the smaller, weaker half is on the bow fighting with the anchor and rode.... ....
My smaller, weaker half stands at the bow with a windlass remote in her hands and points to where she wants me to steer. I'm the non-comm helmsman in this scenario, that's all.
I see no sexist role. Either position is fairly mundane.
