Let me add my welcome to DuckDuck and Kristen. We need more women here writing on this forum. I love to see woman single handlers.
DuckDuck - are you sailing our of Cork or Dingle by chance. I was in Ireland a few years ago and got to sail out of Dingle for a day. It took a team of horses to get me out of Dingle.. What a gorgeous place that area is. I could almost retire there. If you are sailing in those waters you are a better sailor than most here in this forum. Keep up the great job.

Nah I sail out of Dublin (Howth). Unfortunately the Irish Sea tends to be colder than the Atlantic but not quite as rough! Sailed a couple of times out of west cork... Pleasent compared to days like these, which are becoming all too frequent!

Another woman sailor here... Sailing just shy of 3 mos. now and addicted -out sailing every weekend and sometimes twice a week on rented sailclub Capri 22's. Signed up for coastal cruising course and who knows what thereafter... I'm definitely committed! Just wish we had more wind here in San Diego - but winter's coming!

You can have some of ours! Half our races have been cancelled thanks to too much wind this year.... half of the others were cancelled due to no wind YAY climate change!

Hi, everyone! I'm so glad to see such an active group/thread on here for women!

I did not grow up sailing or really on the water at all. My first experience with a sailboat was on my second date with my now husband. Could that have sealed the deal? hmmmm, probably. He had a J-22 that we lake raced/sailed for years. We bought our first boat together a few months before we were married...a Cape Dory 30. Now we have a Crealock 34. We love to weekend sail with a few week-long sails thrown in when we can take the time. No kids but 3 cats, who we like to take along on occasion.

So glad to meet you all!

Does lake sailing count? We got our first boat in '96, spent a lot of time out on it. The last 5 yr.s life has gotten in the way of long weekends. Add to that a lake level that dropped to dangerous levels, so not so much sailing. But we will make up for that now that we are retired!

I spent summers in grade school on my father's day sailers on a small inland lake in southwest Michigan, (mainly as a passenger), then nothing for almost 20 years. Got started again a few years ago when my husband got interested, took lessons, bought a Hunter 170 for use on that same inland lake in Michigan, then realized we needed a boat closer to home (Chicago north shore) and bought a Newport 28 for use on Lake Michigan. Now we can sail wherever we happen to be in the summer.
