Sailing moms: not what you think

Say the words “sailing” and “mom”, and you’re likely to get complaints that she’s hovering, ruining the fun, getting in the way of self-reliance and confidence. Perhaps.

But here’s the untold story of women and moms in sailing, from the April issue of Sailing Magazine.

Working to play

Working to play

Working to play

We don’t aspire to work,

we aspire to play.

When play is easy and everywhere,

it’s just time passed,

and work is something to avoid.

When play is challenging and rare,

it creates something new,

and work is vital.

Pop-up sailing?

Nick,
Hi, my name is R P. I heard about your book Saving Sailing on Sailing Anarchy. I am about 100 pages into it and enjoying it quite a bit so far. In your book, you mention a French-designed boat on page 94 that sounds like the perfect boat for my family in our current situation. Could you tell me the make or model of the boat you are talking about? Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi R,

I believe it was/is called the Kaïdoz. Not sure of it is still in production. Can’t say it was beautiful, but it seemed innovative.

Thanks for your message.
