PAMDEMONIUM is on a distinguished road
woman singlehanders

I grew up in Colorado, so I did not have lots of sailing history. When I married, we bought a sailboat, but the "yelling" from my male counterpart deterred me from going out. After a nasty divorce I got to keep the sailboat :-)~ I took some basic classes from USPS, grabbed some more knowledgeable folks and experimented with sailing (without all the yelling). I realized I loved it and ended up living aboard for 5 years, sailing singlehanded. It was a great thrill whenever I was out. I, too got strange comments and looks whenever I came to a new port, but definitely worth all of it!!!
