Women Racing for Women

A Little Extra Breeze

by Marion Bartholomew

This article has been adapted from the original published in Sail Magazine

There comes a time when women know they need to step into the light and create
their own opportunities. Such a time came in the summer of 2005, when there were
enough of us females active in the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club to inspire the club to
hold an all-female sailing race in August of that year. One of our goals was to raise
money for charity (over the years we have raised tens of thousands of dollars),
another was to prove to every woman who joined us that we could get out there on
the water and do this. We called it our ‘Ms. Race’. A fairly seasoned sailor, I was
invited to captain the boat that I usually crew aboard. It was a 36 foot Beneteau
called, fittingly, My Time.

The winds in August in Sandy Hook Bay tend to be light, and the weather is usually
good, and therein hangs my tale.

The crew came together easily, though it was a fairly inexperienced group. We
happily practiced for the race in early August, in the light wind conditions that are
typical of Sandy Hook Bay at that time of the year. Even crew members new to sailing
seemed comfortable as we went through the maneuvers of tacking and gybing. We
practiced reefing, though heaven forbid we should need to.

Saturday, August 27, 2005, dawned sunny, clear, and breezy. Quite breezy. We had a
solid 15 knots, which in our case approached the upper limit for uneventful racing. We
were all a bit intimidated as we dropped My Time’s mooring, but I wanted my crew to
feel confident, and I did my best to look confident, myself.

Then came the start and gusts into the twenties. Where was all this wind coming

On the first leg, with gusts now to 25 knots, the boat was overpowered and we
reefed. (In all my past seasons as a crew, I cannot remember a single time when we
needed to reef My Time’s main). At this point winning the race was not important to
me any more, and while not one of my five crew expressed concern in words for their
physical welfare, I saw anxiety creep onboard and try to take charge. I had to stop
worrying about losing control of the boat and stay focused on finding the marks,
giving directions, inspiring my crew. I didn’t feel we were in any imminent danger, but
the wind was challenging our confidence, and I had to be the one to bring everybody
home. It was just a race, not a test of survival, right?

The story in brief: Did we finish? Yes, last. Did we make mistakes? Oh my, so awfully

Then, as we crossed the finish line, the committee on the RC boat applauded and
called out wonderful words like “Great job!” and “Congratulations” and it felt so very,
very heartening to hear those cheers. I saw my crew’s faces utterly glowing with pride
for just having done it, for having suffered no damages to body or boat. We were all
stronger now, and our two hours of rough sailing became a precious and unexpected
gift of increased self-confidence on the water and in ourselves.
