Don't bother, girls. That "cindy" thingy wasn't interested in sailing, she was only there to plug the insurance company in her sig. Just another spammer...

right now I am restoring a 1936 Blanchard Senior classic wooden sailboat   and not on the water with anything but my power boat.  I have developed an obsession with the old wooden sail boats and am learning the skills of sailing.  I live in Louisville Kentucky so the wind isnt great here but better on the river than on Lake Cumberland where I do most of the rest of my boating.  Fortunately the sail boat isnt hard to haul so I will be traveling with her.   Quite frankly at this point if all I do is sit in her at the dock that would be satisfactory provided I can get through the restoration :-)

Mostly not true but partly.   I own a web and software development company and UMU is a client.  When I have an appropriate place to promote them I do.   I think that is what sigs are for?  I also have all of my boats and watercraft insured by them and would never pimp a company I didnt believe in.   However I truly am interested in sailing and for me the old wooden sail boats....

Another here!

We are getting a few more women sailors up here in Northumberland, but not many regulars. Still, quite often in the past year the ladies changing rooms have been full - a fantastic development. Dry suits have helped, although I am a steamer girl for preference.

Embarrassed Embarrassed Truly sorry cindi63, but we've had so many "genuine" spammers!

Since you are interested in sailing, welcome to the forum! There are quite a few female sailors here, who are on the water regularly and post even more regularly... I'm one of them 

I'm   years old and I attempt to sail a Contender, much to the amusement of every other member of Lancing SC, on the South coast of England.

Good luck with your restoration project and enjoy sailing in her when she's back to her former glory.

Don't forget to post photos of the work in progress!!

And when you've finished that Blanchard, you can start on mine if you like .

(Sorry, please forgive my overfamiliarity.  It's been a long day)

BTW, our very own BNS is an extremely talented designer, web mistress and photographer herself, and bilingual as well.  We all worship her from afar, (because she tells us to ).

 What do you mean "from afar"?!?! I'm a married woman, I can't offer the "hands on" version!!
