Voyage: All Women’s Sail Miami to Key West, February 2017

Captain Ryan was probably a little nervous about making this trip.  All women.  Overnight.  Many first-time sailors.  *gulp*  But you know what?  These salty gals were actually some of the heartiest, most engaged and active passengers we have had aboard Libra.  They were all curious about the electronics, navigation, maneuvering ships at night and each gal held a hand-steering shift during the short one-night voyage.  The trip was definitely a success and a great way to introduce women to overnight sailing.  It was also good for many of the women to break from their partners and truly get a feel for sailing and holding the helm of a sailboat on their own.  With Annie Dike from HaveWindWillTravel leading the voyage, the intent was there was no stupid question, only questions not asked.  Let the learning begin!  Libra will probably put together a few more “all womens” sails in the 2017 season.  Be on the lookout!
