Thanks for the info so far! What I'd really like though is suggestions for places I can do an ASA101-103-type course in March (not iceboating :p). Maybe I should specify that I don't want to go more...

Oh, right -- just a few details missing. :D Well, distance is no limit -- but practically speaking, I only have a week, so the Greek Isles is probably not the place to go. I'm in the midwestern US,...

I am just about the chillest person in the world, so don't start thinking I'm some kind of feminazi, guys. :p

You got that right. I'm a child of the post-feminist era: I have tended to assume that everyone, m or f, married or single or whatever, will play by the generally-accepted rules. There's a time and...

No, I never said "every man," and I certainly make no claims about hotness. I've probably sailed with 15 different people this year, and only four of them have been creepy. (One made advances twice,...

OK, Smack, I'll give you an example. Last weekend, I spent a couple of hours out on the lake with a guy I hadn't sailed with before. We had a good time, but all sailing-focused and totally...

The first couple of times, I did this. Then paranoia set in: it is me? am I sending the wrong signals? do I have some kind of a reputation? I really don't think so. It's only that I'm single, and...

Timely thread, since I just logged on intending to rant about unwanted advances from male crew. I have a small boat, and I dry-sail: it's possible to single-hand but launching really requires two...

OK, I understand the slowness bit, but what makes it unstable?
