woman singlehanders

I do not singlehand on a boat as large as yours...mine is a 23...but I have had the opposite experience. Most men I have found are quite supportive and very enthusiatic that I even have a boat much less sail it. I will admit that I have on occasion seen them watching me from the other docks when I''m coming in and out of the slip in rough winds, but I have also had them come over afterwards and tell me "good job" when everything was still in one piece.

I don''t expect anyone to grant me special considerations because I am a woman who singlehands, but I hope for the support and comraderie given to any sailor who is out there feeding their passion.
