Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Was just pointing out misceptions can lead to unnecessary hostilities. By the way my bride has run the boat standing single watch ( I napped in the cockpit) in a gale. She Does just fine thank you. Neither of us can pull up stuck anchor. We go up and down and power or sail over it. Our headsails roll and we use a winch when neccessary. Brains not brawn makes for good sailors. Best sailor I ever knew was a slight lady town librarian. She was great on multiday passages. Taught me a ton of stuff. First day on new boat my bride went up the mast.said she just wanted to see the view after rigger had finished his stuff.
