Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Wife and I went sailing with friends this weekend and a comment from one of them made us chuckle. She asked, do you two ever fight? You're so nice to each other "Hey sweetie would you hold this, please pull that line, okay, we're getting ready to do such and such". "No yelling or screaming, ya'll are weird, too nice"! LOL. I learned, if I want my wife to come out and sail with me, I need to be calm and polite. She enjoys boating as long as the stress level is low. It also makes your guests much more comfortable and willing to help.
