After a month or so on Sailnet, I just noticed the herSailnet forum. I am 52, a small lake sailor from Minnesota. I sail for recreative purposes, and enjoy sailing with friends and solo in equal measure. I also enjoy paddle boarding, music, sketching and astrophotography. I seek to be competent in all that I do, but I have nothing to prove to anyone else. I'm a bit frustrated with the misogynistic tone I read in many of the Sailnet fora. I look forward to getting to know you and learn from you.
