OH? REALLY???? HERE WE GO....!
She going to tie the lines, drop the anchor, pull up the anchor, cook the meals too?
Let's see how it goes when your in 15 knots running and need to come about and haul in the sheets LOL..you will both be on the winches is my guess .. one for each.. all things being equal LOL
re; "is sailing sexist?"
that's funny. but, actually, if i have anyone to crew for me, they usually tend the jib and i handle the main and tiller. unless i have to strike the jib. with the holiday, when the wind would get too high, i'd strike the jib and lash it to the foredeck. since this required going forward without lifelines or anything, i would do that. in that case, my crew ( usually a girlfriend but not always) would take the tiller and main, as i went forwards to tend to the jib. in some ways, i suppose, that wasn't as good an idea as it seemed, at the time. while i was taking the risk, which seemed smart, i also happened to be the one who actually knew how to sail. thinking of it, now, it might have been better if i had let my crew go forwards. i could sail back for them. not so sure it would have worked out so well had i actually fallen overboard.
yes, if i'm at the helm, she'd have to handle the anchor. she'd never even been on any sort of boat til i went to look at this boat. can't very well give her the helm. at least, not at this point in the game.
she's a better cook than i am, although i am not bad. honstly, i'm a really good cook at the things i cook. but she is an all around better cook. every woman in her family is gifted in the kitchen. she tends to do more of the cooking because of that, but i cook about a third of the time and i do the dishes much more often.
it may sound bad but, maybe because the folks that sail with me are not experienced sailors, i always have the helm on my boat. i don't ever ride ( motorcycle ) on the back of anyone, either. other people's riding tends to scare me. lol. seriously, though. the last time i rode on the back of anyone, it was on a 'test ride' at the bike shop where i worked. he kept saying he had a condition, on the bike, none of us could seem to experience. so, i rode on back of him to see if it would do it for him. never again! dude was a terrible rider. but that's neither here nor there.
heck. i thought you were going to say something about me saying i was a lot stronger than her. lol
