Gender stats in sailing

It’s noticeable that more men are involved in sailing than women.   Since the Latitude 38 Crew List allows one to see the gender of participants (I can’t imagine why they think it is important),  I thought I would do a little study.   Results are as of today.

Totals:

Racing Crew 189

Racing Skippers 33

Daysailing Crew 220

Daysailing Skippers 40

Cruising Crew 449

Cruising Skippers 122



The  Latitude 38 Crew List Party is at 1800 hrs March 9 at the Golden Gate Yacht Club.  Temerity Racing will be there to meet new crew prospects.

    Is this why we see so few mermen?
