Ladies in the water

Do sailors get more ladies that the land folks?

Re: Ladies in the water

Absolutely! I can get ladies to sail with me every trip, while most of the guys I know don't like sailboats at all, claiming they're too slow. At my age, I wanna go slower - not faster. For me, now, 10 knots is screaming along. 30 years ago, anything slower than 30 knots I considered creeping along. The only ladies that went on the boats with me back then were my wife and daughter and my daughter got seasick most of the time. Today, on the sailboat, she rarely gets the least bit queasy and loves being on the boat. Next spring, if my health doesn't get worse, all the ladies where she works have said they want to go on a trip down the Chesapeake with me to Baltimore's Inner Harbor and back to Havre de Grace. Looks like I will have about 6 ladies on the boat each day for a week. I couldn't get a single guy to make that trip last summer - AMAZING!

Eat your heart out guys!

Women like that are waiting on the docks in droves ready to jump on any boat with any loser. You'll be fine.

Re: Ladies in the water

I have found that some woman love the idea of sailing, but when it comes to actually sailing, not so much.

That is a very unrealistic photo of somebody sailing. She's going to get such bad blisters without her sailing gloves.
