Re: girls and heels
It is interesting that 2 person racing dinghy fleets tend to have nearly 50% women sailors. Lido 14 fleets are an example. The women sailing in Lido 14s tend to be younger.
Also, the Harbor 20 fleets tend to have a high percentage of woman participants. I'd guess 50% women.
Most impressive is the high percentage of woman drivers in Harbor 20s. Between 20-30% of race skippers in Harbor 20s are women.
