Where has sailor Debbie McGee gone? Lost in the fog of this thread?

She was on the zinc thread, which she started, but she left the building about an hour ago

... im a sailor, professionally, so, i am qualified to sail and captain small craft here in sweden on inland waterways and a significant distance out to shore (i am british and may have to come back to the uk at some point. 

... so to my question are there any single handed boaters constantly traveling who are not male and travel alone?  
 

 

There are loads of women single handers out here -- on narrowboats, wide beams, cruisers ...

 

Given your background and European experience, you might also be interested in https://www.facebook.com/groups/womenonbarges/

 

This is their blurb:

Quote

Women on Barges is a closed FB group, a place for women on every shape and size of barge -- or any other type of boat -- to come together and connect. Some of us live on barges, some only holiday on barges and some of us want to. Some of us know a LOT about boats in general, some know not much at all. We are single; we are married; we are otherwise; we have kids, grandkids, we are working or retired. Some of our barges are in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland or the UK or other countries. We are from a variety of countries which are as diverse as we are.  No matter who we are, this is a place for women to share respectful, supportive discourse. We invite any women who are interested in this lifestyle and the challenges it presents!

Um, you had noticed that this thread is over a month old? The OP hasn’t posted since 9 December.

Ummm, yes. Oh, look, it's live again!

 

(I reckon other people beyond the OP might be interested in this material.) Why not?
