Women''''s Sailing Experiences

I have a old 30ft sailboat, that showed me its capable of almost anything. I know because I tried.
I,m good with close to all repairs, what makes travelling much easier. But don''t frett, you can learn everything. Just start trying before you go in trouble.
One try I can only recommend, stay for some time on the boat, and pull the plug. Try how far does your energy reach, when you live aboard. If the battery is down just plug in again. (Could you still start the engine?)The navlights during the nights, then GPS and VHF most likely round the clock. Reading in the night is very often already deadly to the battery charge. Get a feeling what you can expect of the rescorses on your boat.
