Seafaring women: the mistress of the house even on a sailing boat


After introducing you to the“Woman Who Never Has to Ask,” it is now the turn of the second type of sailing woman: the hostess. She is usually the skipper’s wife and comes aboard because her husband has this passion. She does not necessarily like it and considers the boat, which in most cases bears her own name, as a kind of beach house. She hates clutter, she can’t stand you putting your head in the engine half an hour before lunch, long sailings end up boring her, and she is ultimately a little jealous of the same boat. To the friend whose husband sold her Grand Soleil she says “lucky you,” but nevertheless she continues to follow her own. This can be remedied by making her understand that first of all, the boat is not a rival, but neither is it a projection of one’s good living room adorned with doilies and flower vases, and that it may not always be possible to set the table in the cockpit with underplates and crystal glasses. But at the same time remember that some order, and this applies even more so on board than anywhere else, is really needed and that the female presence in many cases is necessary.
