Other opinions?

I have the same ambivalence about "women-only" sailing instruction, but perhaps that's fodder for a separate thread.
I'm of a like mindset. I like to think that our sex does not define who we are as individuals. We aren't baboons after all, inside each one of us is a thinking being with a personality all our own that far transcends mere sex. I believe that to focus on a persons sex is to deny in some way their much more important humanity.

I was privileged to have been introduced to this lady many years ago, as well as her husband. They were family friends. I read most of her letters from the Brigantine "Yankee." It's a different world now.

Re: HerSailnet...Ground Rules

Not to hijack the thread, But have to tell you I'd meet these amazing people in Palma de Majorca in '66. I'd made models of Yankee as a boy so what an honor. I've still got the last bits of teak from her taffrail (Rara Tonga) and got a guilded tour of the Irving and the Electa in LA when they were outfitting. So different,eh!
