In the whitewater river guide business, I had a hard and fast rule. No bra s in the boat. It is a hazard. When someone hits the cold water, they could have a diaphram spasm. I think a restriction around the thoracic area could hinder resperations. Worked every time!

Be careful when wearing an underwire bra because it can actually throw off the compass. :eek:

I was on an archaeological project and we were mapping with a Brunton compass on a tripod. To read the compass you had to lean over the compass to look straight down on it. One girl on the project could never get the same reading as everyone else. We finally figured out the underwire in her bra was magnetic and throwing off the compass!

While I'm dishing out public service announcements, I was on another project and showing an archaeologist how to use a sighting compass. She couldn't get the proper reading either. It turned out that the piercing in her eyebrow was magnetic and throwing off the sighting compass.

On a close subject...

I've found women crew prefer inflatable PFDs. I asked one time why. The reply was they were more female anatomy "friendly." I carry two inflatable PFDs and, when handing out PFDs prior to sailing, make sure they go to the women onboard first.

As far as the bra question, I'd think a sports bra would be best. Sailing is, after all, a "Sport" ... isn't it? However, as a guy, no bra also works just as well on my boat.

I hadn't thought about an underwire messing with a compass. I guess any metal in clothing with a potential ferous content could do it. Thanks for the tip.

My boat has two rules

1) no bra's on board
2) It's more about attitude than attire.

I kid you knot, ask the Admiral (MMR).

I don't visit Hersailnet, simply because I figured it would be a bunch of women discussing their favorite Helen Reddy lyrics. Then I come across this thread... and I am totally blown away. Well done!
