Women in Boston/North Shore Area?

Hi Ladies! Just wanted to see if there were many of you around Boston on here. I'm looking to get a 24-28 ft by May and will liveaboard it this summer (similar to camping, I know but that is what I like and can afford). I'm not a total beginner but pretty close and prefer to sail with women/ learn from women. Intend to sail as much as possible.

Will be looking for a potential private lesson or two plus an experienced sailing partner/ person looking to have fun. Beer and boat are on me, you bring your experience/ knowledge.

If any of you know of a boat for sale in good condition, under 29 ft, on the Atom's Good Ol' Boat list and less than $12K in the area, give me a shout out! I will also post this in another thread. Every boat I call on in yachtworld or craigslist is already under offer pending survey.

I suggest that you connect with, or visit one of the monthly meetings at the Pelagic Sailing Club in Boston. Pelagic Sailing Club | Dedicated to bringing together competent skippers and crew for their mutual sailing benefit in the New England area!

I was definitely going to check them out but thought I'd just put out some "feelers" now! You never know what amazing people you'll meet if you just ask...especially on a sailing forum!

flythrough, sadly there aren't many women who regularly participate on SailNet. More, I suspect, lurk rather than post.

Best of luck with your search and welcome to SailNet.

You nailed it, Donna. I lurk all the time, but rarely post. I wish more women would post - there's so much knowledge and experience here. Flythrough, good luck with your quest for the perfect boat!
