Denice,

I have you grouped into the category of "sails to cool places". There's no gender involved with that category. It does mean a lot of sailing experience.

That, and maybe the "should be jealous of" category. But then I'm planning to sail through the winter again.

Regards,
Brad

As far as not posting much, I'm not on line much.
Have you seen my latest race write-up? Two very attractive, very able, very hard-ass ladies on our crew. And trust me...they weren't the quiet type.

Two cents worth from the Bear:
I will be the first the admit that I have learned much more from women than men. I have found women to better teachers, more patient and understanding, usually more complete and through with instructions, unafraid to question and quicker to see results, good and bad. I have found these things by sailing with them as crew and passengers and even in comand. To the Ladies of Sail, God Bless Them!

women sailing and posts??

Is the reason why not so many women post to sites like this is that they are all too busy running the house, working full time, sailing in the summer and helping to refit in the winter never mind looking after family - kids aged parents huband/skipper?? Do we have the free time?? If we do, are we spending catching up with best friends who we don't get to see so much during the summer as we are sailing? Is that a reason do you think??

Um, with all due respect, do any of you ever talk any real sailing?

As a fairly new woman captain who has just joined Sailnet, I was really hoping to find a group of women (okay, some men, too, why not?) who were interested in exchanging tips on like refurbishing teak, most clever sail trim, how to sail as close-hauled as possible, what % heel you favor, etc.,...
Will my hopes be dashed here?
Hope not.

Welcome.. nice to have you here.

Plenty of discussion on the topics you listed, but I suppose they are of wide enough interest that they go into general discussion, or learning to sail rather than hersailnet. Of course you are free to start a thread in hersailnet on any of those topics, and I encourage you to do so.

Thank you. And please forgive me if I am awkward at first. I checked the first postings on this thread and the last, but now it occurs to me that if I didn't check the middle I may be jumping to conclusions. My bad.
I don't really know how to get my head wrapped around what Sailnet is and how to become familiar with it all, and with who all!
Probably will stumble a bit, sorry!
If there are long time regulars, will they want to hear from an upstart?
