Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Good point about the cleaning products Julie. You are right.

Ahh, but life is messier than that. Mine is anyway. No woman ever appeared to clean up my life or house...

I am sure you are right about the sports too, although I can't relate to it. I was poor, --- my Dad was laid off when the Ford plant closed here so I always working the night shift in high school to support my parents.....so I never did any organized sports. I used to imagine how great it would be to do sports...But I see the kids today, all they do is organized sports, girls as well as boys..

BTW ..I'm doing pretty well now though, and although I did coach little league for 7 years when our kids were growing up , my wife and I spent way more time with them on the water or hiking in the mountains than on any sports fields. We kind of feel sorry for our friends running running to every sports game and semi final this and that.. all over the country. We pass them on our way to the boat.

And that I have never regretted.
