Last I knew, sailor didn''t have a gender
Though not female (which I add only for perspective), I do singlehand and enjoy it. It is nice though, to sail with other boats, and be able to share, as well as be alone. The main thing is doing what you love, and knowing the only one you have to please, or impress, is yourself. IMHO, any man that has a problem with a woman singlehanding, isn''t much of a man, so don''t let those few bother you.
