Re: Female ASA Instructors?

while you're looking up things, how about researching the definition of 'patronizing.'

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

I attempted to, but it auto-corrected to 'misinterpret'.

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

not when you're on the receiving end, son... Let's just say it's pretty similar to saying, "oh look aren't they cute when they're little!"

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

Ok, you win. I'll refer to her as Commodore from now on. Hope she doesn't mind the demotion.

Just kidding. Truce?

A few years later, and the issue hasn't changed. I'm desperate to find a female instructor to take my wife (and me) through ASA 114.

If you are requesting input, a location might be of great help, also a google search can yield some help as well.

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

Teaching style is very important to learning, so I get the desire to have a compatible teacher. I wonder, however, if it has to be based on gender, rather than temperament, etc. In the end, the sea and the vessel are not going to treat men and women differently.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Location is of secondary importance, but some warm, sunny climate - Caribbean - would be nice, and ASA114 is a requirement.

Re: Female ASA Instructors?

With all due respect.... this is a BS request. Gender should play no role in an educator... sailing, sewing or science. It should play no role for the student.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
