Found this link on LII. It reminded me of a certain friend. Well actually 2 friends. Anyway, it’s really quite interesting looking at the history of women and the sea, from myths to modern racing times.
Ever since my one friend went sailing around the BVIs and came back with such stories I’ve always wondered what it’d be like. I have come to realize that one thing my new city is lacking is waterfront. Supposedly there’s a “river” that runs through it, but I never really see it. It’s not like my hometown when I’d see the river every day (which this past weekend I took a few drives specifically along the waterfront just to look at it).
