Re: girls and heels

i know of at least 2 females who own and sail formosa 41 ketches--there may be more-i havent taken an actual count. some of us even refit ours..... there are many solo female sailors but the males will never know who and or where, as we dont always advertise our whereabouts freely--isnt safe to do this.
i have a female friend sailing her boat from east coast, md, to west coast and is in panama now. there are many of us sailing bigger boats, but there isnt any advertising done -- for our own safety.
there are many dinghy sailorettes, as well.
you male types may wanna re adjust your perspective some before saying where or where not the ladies are located who own and sail boats.
most of the male types i know with boats are bitching because their chosen sugarplum doesnt sail.
i am in la cruz de huanacaxtle, nayarit, mexico , laughing at all of them until they show their faces here.....LOL

as far as racing--many ladies sailing racers....

btw--i could never figger out why a guy chooses a lady then gripes she wont share the dream......why not choose a lady who WANTS same dream?????

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.

Re: girls and heels

girls in heels on a boat are a bad thing unless they have great legs and go braless

Re: girls and heels

Everytime I see the thread heading, I get exicted than realize what it's about.
Very misleading, kind of like the political ads that are on TV

Re: girls and heels

Yes, I (a 55 year old, 190 lb. man) am still getting used to even 15 degrees of heel, and work on that every time I go out. So, I guess in the case of women who get antsy about excessive heeling (or sometimes heeling at all) I guess I sail like a girl.

I suppose there are worse thing in this world....
