This is a great thread. I have been single-handing my boat for years. (I am not a woman). I have singlehanded from Annapolis to Block Island and Newport-Bermuda-Annapolis. To me, its a sport and brings the challenge to of sailing to another level. Much like climbing mountains or helicopter skiing. I think that anyone, including women, are up to the task. Bear in mind, it is a very high risk activity and appropriate safety measures as suggested in this thread must be adopted. That means anywhere including the Harbor. Just ask the poor fellow who is missing as of yesterday on the Chesapeake Bay. (See the singlehander missing thread posted this morning).
