Denise, why is it that the fellas at your yacht club aren't chasing you around the marina?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

tropicat, ever hear the saying don't s---t where you sleep? I keep my love life away from the club. Other then that and, considering most yacht clubs are or were once only male space, the guys in our club are very supportive of the women members.

My social network is mostly women and I have women friends that come on the boat.

There is many options for people to go sailing.

We are running a boatbuilding/sailing community/coop with the intention to go sailing in future. There has been quite many people involved in the building process. When it comes to females. My impression is: If they choose a bigger boat with more people onboard, it seems kind of safer, than just jump on a boat with a single man.
And besides, sailing with a group of people is usually more fun.

some pictures from the boatbuilding stage is here:

They are mostly smiling! :-)

Not all guys are pigs or antisocial. It sounds like the guys in your area have a poor reputation.

Sorry. That was not my meaning. just that some find it safer or more enjoyable in sailing with a group of other people. It doesent goes for all. Some have no problem joining as a crew on a smaller boat or even go couchsurfing or hitchinghiking around the world alone.
