It’s important that both men AND women have both hands-on experience and theoretical knowledge in order to gain more confidence and safety on the water when sailing or boating. Learning must occur to spark experience. This can be done through boat shows, conferences, reading and hands-on experience- but the point of the first sentence is that it should and can be done by men AND women, not just the manly man on his boat! You see men on boats a lot. This is changing, especially as you immerse yourself in this world and start learning that there are more and more women involved with boating and sailing than you might have thought. There are women sailors and boaters who follow this blog and I hope more will follow as we go. I digress. Calling all Women Sailors and Boaters: If you have the means to get to it, there’s a very good Sailing and Boating Convention just for women coming to Southern California in February 2019. It’s called the Sailing Convention for Women and while it’s not the only one, it’s the only one on the West Coast in the near future. The Convention date is February 2nd 2019 in Newport Beach, Cali, USA. When me and Hotwife were going through the morning and afternoon seminars; I was a bit jealous because there are so many cool seminars that I would like to go to, but she’s going instead. I’ll stay here and babysit (I mean parent).
PS: If you’re around the convention and spot Hotwife, tell her hello-
