Sailing isn't sexist, but don't pretend that the sexes aren't different.
The great majority of sailboats in a given marina are owned by men, or if they're owned by a couple (hetero), then the man is the one who decided to get the boat.
If the man gets hit by a bus, the boat will be sold. Most likely to another man.
Women aren't excluded from sailing, but the female sailboat owner is still a rarity.
