The Cruising Life: Women’s Perspectives

Cruising-life-women-sailing

30+ women contributed to this blog series about women who are living/lived the cruising life. Whether they’ve been cruising for 6 months or for years, these are the perspectives of various women from different parts of the world. I know I’m already learning from their stories, I hope you can learn something new as well! I’ll be posting a question from this series every Wednesday, with an occasional “bonus” question here and there on the occasional Friday, so keep an eye out for our posts!

If you are a current or former cruising woman and would like to contribute to future posts or series, please email me at bynsfb@gmail.com with the subject line “Cruising Questions from Byn” and I’ll send you the list of questions. Answer as many as you like and return with a few photos and I’ll add your contribution as we go!

You can help us spread the word by sharing our photos on twitter, facebook and Pinterest, using the hashtag #womencruisers & #womenwhosail
