Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Adding to this thread...I took my first sailboat cruise two Sundays ago and am hooked. It was also a blast having a very young woman capn (capn Adele) to take us out. She said she was the youngest female to become a captain. (Or something like that). I literally felt like my granddaughter was steering the boat. Made me proud to see a young woman be that good at something like this, and to be doing what she loves.

I loved being topside, and actually did ok below deck. Was leary about that..thought I'd start puking my insides out. But nope. Did ok. Hubby and I are looking at used boats since we really can't afford a new one...and it's definitely a learning experience for us. We're researching many name brand sailboats and so much to learn. Many boats to look at! I think I could be good at this sailing thing if I put my mind and body to it. How long did it take you other ladies to learn to sail?
