Thanks!
I overcome my fear (yes. still have it) by not worrying at the moment what others think of me. Everyone was a beginner once. If they can't remember what that felt like then so be it. Focus on the job at hand and move on.

Best of luck with your presentation!

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

At the risk of resurrecting an old post, but one which I've enjoyed reading again over the years, I would like to make an observation and see if I can get consensus because I will be the keynote speaker at a women's sailing event at my club in a few weeks. I have been trying to find demographics about the number of women sailors out there and how many (married or single) own their boat. What I have found is that there are about 16 million boats, though only 12 million of which are registered, and about 87.3 million adults who participate in recreational boating. Of these totals, 1.5 million (~9%) are sailboats and a survey from the Northeast found 90% of recreational boating participants are male. So the best estimates I can come up with is that 8.7 million women in the U.S. participate in some form of recreational boating, with almost 800,000 involved in sailing. If this thread is any indication, then somewhere between 10 and 15% of sailboat owners are female, which is around 150,000 to 225,000 women. Would anyone care to give some feedback on my assumptions here?

Any other interesting tidbits that might be useful for my presentation would also be appreciated. Its theme is about overcoming fear and achieving your goals, which in this case is skippering one's own boat, whether they own it or not, or whether they're partnered or not.

Thanks!

Young women don't put up with a fraction of the crap that women used to.


and this is why i sit on dock or at anchor for 2 weeks or how ever long it takes to have the real personality appear....rodlmffao.. no one gets into my boat and sails away immediately. i have to get to know the quirks and weirdnesses first....lol
