I am a 47 year old woman...lived aboard my Pearon 26 this summer on the mooring...sailed almost every day, even just for an evening sail. Am just beginning my Captain's License process...I am the only woman I know who singlehands. It is so peaceful to be alone and out on the water...

Back at the sailing thing again. Have a 27ft Mirage now for about a month. Docking is quite a deal for me but I'm getting to know the boat a bit more. Its almost time to take boats out of the water for the winter so not a lot of time now. Looking forward to next season sailing the Bras Dor Lakes in Nova Scotia. I am keeping my boat in Baddeck. Judy

Hi all,

this talk is so encouraging...have been sailing for three years, on a big boat with a mean captain (my now ex-partner, any similar exeriences?) and am currently looking for my own boat that I can single hand, and teach my young adult children to sail. Have been looking at a Grampian 26 which is in my price, and geographic and ability range. Anybody know wnything about this boat?

I'm new here, but will be a frequent visitor!

The perfect world I envision is one in which the tiller in the hand of the opposite sex, a different race, different (or lack of) religion... whatever, is not even worthy of comment. If you handle a boat well, my hat is off to you.

For what it is worth, my own anecdotal evidence on the subject is from a man's perspective. Women seem to get more resistance from members of their own gender when it comes to attempts to break into what otherwise might be considered a domain of men, be it activities of leisure or career. That will never cease to confound me.

However, having said all that, please do not begrudge me a double take if the skipper is in a bikini. I am only human, after all.

I have a friend who has been single handing for seven years. As she headed south one year some friends suggested she join them for a night or two at their marina. The day was a blustery with a bit of a current, but she docked the boat perfectly. One of her friends on shore, who was catching lines, overheard a man remark, "That must be one easy boat to handle." *pause* It tickles me to no end...it wasn't that she was a proficient captain, she simply had an "easy" boat.

When you got it, flaunt it. Real boaters will know the difference.
