I was looking at pictures of the three class winners (Club Swan 50, 42 and 36) at the Swan One Design Worlds in Valencia, and I noticed there was something missing from the three winning boats: Women. Not a single female sailor on any of the boats. Really? Perhaps they were down below, cooking and cleaning for you manly men.
I get that there is always going to be a certain level of Latino machismo bullshit, but what, not one female was good enough to sail with y’all? That’s some weak sauce right there and an outright insult to women sailors. -ed.
