yes it is. But why waste your time and life on idiots? Better to just leave them and their attitudes behind.

Thanks for the support but when a few idiots make it so miserable to stay, you miss out on all the great people you could have met and the places you could have seen. That's what's so sad about ignorance.

How would you react if you happened to anchor in a harbor that turned out to be infested with annoying insects? Doubt you would feel any regret that you didn't get a chance to be better acquainted with them and would move on quickly without a second thought.

Maybe I'm naive but are some people so bad that you can't just avoid them and enjoy the good stuff?

Hiya Julie! This should bring you a chuckle...Never play with a pig! You'll smell it afterwards, and the pig would have enjoyed the encounter!

Its only sad if you see it that way. I don't pull into anchorages looking for new friends. If I find some that's a bonus. If not - nothing lost.

I just met my first same gender couple this year cruising that happened to be male. They were treated as everyone else was (in the US). It didn't even register until someone mentioned it after they moved on. I see the lifestyle choice of sailor. Beyond that I don't pay any attention.

I think it's a great idea. Go have fun.

I think you will have few problems. As always, there is a minority of ignorant bastards out there, but unfortunately they can sometimes hold positions of power. This is most apparent where the country is non secular and poisoned by religion and superstition.

In the EU your rights are assured. In the cruising community we think you will not even be noticed, unless you talk about guns and anchors...

further info in PM to you....

it is not just your preferences -- my sig other (f) and i were joking about an encounter she had with another woman -- we had been out about 2 years and the person said what was your route and winds - my sig other replied i don't remember to which she got a you obviouly don't know what you are doing -- another friend of ours heard it and later told my sig other she should have said - no but i am just deck candy --
oh by the way we have now been out 6 years circum nav the carib and sailed across the atlantic and look forward to your catching up with us in the med - as for the other party we understand they finally left the usa 4 years later and finally made it to a foreign country

just our opinion
