Mad is a fantastic online magazine for boaters from circumnavigators to local building and racing scenes. This past week, the editor interviewed me for their Women in Sailing Podcast Series. As you'll hear in the interview, I see the industry's biggest opportunity to grow by strong focus on women! Our roles, skills, interests, indeed the increase in numbers of us who've gotten Captain's license, bought our own boats, and who are in charge of the household finances where big boating decisions are made are key to growing the market. While the current economy may make it more urgent, it's also simply good business for progressive companies who want to last through the boomer generation. More women own-her-ship.... think about it.
