Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Living in rougher country, such as remote Alaska, usually flattens the differences between people. When it is -50F and your heater just went out, you don't really care who comes to your assistance......my wife is 6' tall, ex raft guide, and is physically in better shape than most men. I wouldn't try and takeover a task from her either. -AlaskaMC

Sorry, but that just doesn't help the rest of us who aren't married to Deep Woods Barbie.
