Howdy Connie, and Welcome Aboard CF!
I second the suggestion to the Mermaids group (it has hundreds of women
members of CF in it). Here is its description:
"WELCOME TO THE MERMAIDS GROUP | This group is for women
handers, and boat
owners to share ideas and experiences. Mermaids are an independent lot so figured it would be a good name for a group made up of women who love the water
, sailing, and adventure. After joining please post a quick hello in the Welcome thread."
Also, there is another group on Facebook known as "Women Who Sail" that would probably be interesting to you.
Good luck, have fun sailing, and on CF too.
