Re: Is Sailing Sexist?
Okay, so let's get back to sailing. Minnewaska, earlier you mention that it is no big deal for your wife to be on the bow handling the anchor, because you have a power windlass so there is no sexism in the roles...
...how about before you had a windlass- were you on the bow heaving and hauling, or were you stroking the throttle?
In fact, it was me. My father made me do it. Since she's been around, we've always had a windlass.
Maybe he was kid-ist
