There are few women posting around here regularly, that's a fact and that's also a fact that they are nicer and more polite than most men. I just wish they posted more and that there were more around.

I find the global attitude towards women around here quite paternalistic, like if in what regards sailing they were just the cook and housekeeper while the man is the captain.

Probably that was like that some years ago and given the age of most of the posters it is possible that it is yet for most like that but we have only to look at sailing races to see that more and more women are racing....and cruising and that some of them are beating most of the men, if not all.

I have meet several times all women crews cruising and racing and let me tell you they are always among the ones that it seems to have more fun doing it.

So ladies, please post more, I just love girl's talk and with more girls around I am quite sure this would be an even better site

Regards

Paulo
