The women of sailnet - Years sailing

I think the polls in the admin thread could be fun, especially if tweaked (and including all possible options - we'll see if I can do that!).

So, who are the women of sailnet?

OK here's me, a relative newbie. Hubby and I sailed a day sailer (actually a racing boat, a Thistle) at barely controllable speeds during summers on a local lake, the past two years. We mostly avoided crash landings.

Last year we spent the entire season shopping for a bigger more comfortable boat (my minimum requirements were: a cabin and a head). We traveled around the northeast looking everywhere. He wanted a C&C for speed and I wanted a Catalina for easy sailing. Finally we settled on a Catalina 27 that was already at our local lake; no shipping expense or hassles needed.

So this year we are enjoying going out every day possible and I am actually sailing the boat myself. It's enormous fun!

Sorry I'm a bit late joining this thread.....

Me and my husband just bought (last week) a 1984 Spindrift 43 that we plan to restore and then take on a 9 month trip from Texas back to the UK. This is the first boat that we have owned so it's a really exciting time at the moment, although the work ahead is a bit daunting!

Well, 2 yrs ago I sold my hunter 23, and bought my Oday 30, my son was sure I bought it "for him" meaning he thought it was my way to have more time with him. Actually that was not even part of my thinking process to get a 30ft or larger boat! Anyway the kid is 27,and is not staying with me now. I'm having a blast sailing my boat! I don't even think of asking people to come sailing anymore! having the mainsail set up for single handing from the cockpit helps allot. I do plan to take a solo trip to Chesepeake bay soon. I really want to hit cape may in October but that is doubtful.
fair winds ladies!

I sailed between the ages of 14-22 aboard my fathersí boat in NJ and on the Chesapeake. Mostly weekends in the summer. Moved far away, and was then land locked. About the age of 42, the urge to be on the water resurfaced in a most compelling way! So, for the past 5 years I have been getting out on the water as often as I can; reading, learning, and planning. My youngest graduates HS next spring so Iíll be free and clear to sell the house and pursue sailing more. Iím shaking off the rust and looking forward to future cruising! I find the women solo sailors to be very inspiring. Keep the reports and tales coming, I love reading them
