my experience was in lost angeles in the fascist state of kalifornikation....wilmington propeller, actually--the prop was spozed to be 385 usd...we drank their beer, ate their food, and got the prop for 125 usd. we dun gud.

works everywhere, as most businesses with boats as a center are owned and operated by males. some changes have been made, but, sailing is still very very sexist. women--just go to the specialty shops wearing skimpies--bathing suit--skimpies--and see how well you do and report back here on this thread....

yes a few females have done well and shown em how--however, it is still centered around the male ...not a problem---skimpy still works everywhere...not a problem. i have that....

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Watched this on CNN last night; if you have a DVR set it to record 'mainsail' on CNN; it usually repeats a few times. Otherwise; check the link below and following segments of that episode...

Can female sailors make history? - CNN.com Video

Women have participated in large scale events like the VOR & Americas Cup, in the past, unfortunately they did not achieve their goals. Dennis Connors defeated the America True (all women) syndicate to challenge Australia for the Americas Cup; and the women who crewed the VOR fell out of contention because they lacked enough offshore experience/training (one of the former crew explains this on the Mainsail video).

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

Is this the ubiquitous gender bias expressed by undeveloped and unfulfilled id or just a blatant expression of envy (or use of)of primary or secondary sexual features ? Often threatened self esteem needs the cover. If we all did our own thing and flaunted what we got , social mores would have a more level playing field and talent/skill/accomplishment would have more value.

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

funny how the america 3 team had faster times than dennis connor so he bough this position.didnt hear how much he actually paid for it, tho. ..is always nice to be in the right hot tub at the right time....with the tactitions of 3 ac teams in 1995......hhmmmmm....

and sailing has traditionally been a sexist pass-time.. this can be used in our favor..

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I think Connor also needed to redeem himself after losing the first AC ever in it's history.

that isnt sexist--is commonsensist...lol

is a grande thing that sailing is sexist--we ladies can don skimpies and go buy parts in some places--ie, specialty places, like propellers shops, for less than half brand new price....lol....is a GOOD thing...
also, for opening csx railroad bridges--a soft sexy lady voice produces results whereas a man voice yields delay. i learned that in louisiana.....lol


so, ladies--donot diss sexism--it works in our favor more often than not.....rodlmao
Viva la difference

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I would say there are a lot of sailors out there that are. Although I have to admit that after 60k+ offshore miles, My friend Christina bridge is still a better sailor than I. Sailing like alot of things in life can be learned but some people are just gifted.
