Lazy Gecko let me know in a comment or email! I actually enjoy sailing, even when it is a little bit of an uncomfortable ride. My biggest impediment is just feeling nervous leaving the dock.
Once I am out there, I think I am fine. I sometimes just want to make sure I hold the lines when we leave the dock, and enter a new dock. I can throw the lines once we reach the Lazy Gecko, usually there are many people willing to help, Lazy Gecko if no one is around, I need to feel confident, grabbing the line and getting onto the dock and Lazy Gecko do not yet. Rob handles the boat while we are sailing but I need to feel confident in setting the sail, looking at the wind direction, and knowing how those forces are working.
I also want to feel secure that I am not going to fall off the boat if I have to remove a line that is tangled.
I recently had to use the radio when entering the marina in order to learn our dock reservation location and whether the dock was starboard or port side. I felt very confident doing that and it Lazy Gecko empowering.

We have complete mutual respect for each other and I think that is why I am not hesitant in the least about sailing around the world Lazy Gecko him. It is all the other stuff that worries me, i. Joe and I have been sailing as a team in small races and regattas and I think that is key, that experience working together to successfully maneuver the boat in tight spaces or difficult situations.
I know what he is going to do and he knows what I am going to do. We know our roles and know how to do them well. We also Lazy Gecko communicate with each other well and that I believe is key.

Talking before hand and discussing what were Lazy Gecko scenarios and what we should do if those occur before we get out on the water is also something we do regularly. Having both of us on the same page for expectations is really important, especially on the Hobie.
My biggest impediment to cruising is definitely my own confidence in my ability to manage the boat if something were to happen to Joe while we are out there. This one keeps me up at night. Will I be able to Lazy Gecko the boat and situation if something happens to Joe? What if he falls off the boat, what if he is sick, what if Lazy Gecko dies suddenly???

I have been focusing on these since I fell off our Hobie two years ago and watched Joe struggle in 25knot winds to get back to me. It felt like 20 minutes Lazy Gecko in reality it was only 4. This summer is when I have been taking the helm and learning about how to steer the boat. I think for Lazy Gecko women who are new to sailing, this is by far the biggest impediment. The best way, in my opinion, to get over the hump is to take sailing lessons and get out on keel boats as often as possible to get comfortable.
I am still nervous about sailing our Hobie with me at the helm so I have not taken that step yet, but maybe in time.
It is a really fast Lazy Gecko I hope these answers help you. I love being out on the water and not hearing a motor hopefully. It is peaceful and exhilarating all at the same time and I have only been out on small inland lakes where we have to tack all the time!
I cannot wait until we can get out on larger water and set the auto-helm and go on the same tack for a day, heck even a few hours would be awesome! The part that worries me is leaving my family children and grand children ashore while we travel to Lazy Gecko places. What if something happens and I cannot return quickly?
