Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

How are winches and handles designed for men?

If you go to the sore they come in different sizes. So pik the size that's appropriate for you. Also pick a boat that you can handle. An average woman weighs about 160 these days? No, kidding. An average sailing woman weighs maybe 125? To a man's 175 and is 6 inches shorter? Than she doesn't new as big of a boat. Her clothes are smaller so weigh less, she new less calories so less food storage. Smaller boat. Less forces in the sail, easier to use the winches.
