Re: girls and heels
Ya know, in all my sailing experience, I've only seen one person on the very edge of a fear driven breakdown on a boat. It was a 230lb male several years ago on a boat with a very poor owner/driver. This thread just hurts my head to read it's so painfully stupid. I guess I've just been really lucky to have sailed with some great women that even as beginners didn't have a problem accepting that sailboats heeled. I'd also suggest that if a boat's passengers are having fear issues, it's because the skipper and crew isn't exhibiting and instilling calm, unwavering, confidence and teaching in a commensurate manner.
