Sea Spritz
A daily dose of water & whimsy
Women Belong on Boats

Let’s get one thing clear…

I’d consider myself a fairly superstitious person but there is one old piece of folklore I refuse to believe: that women are bad luck on boats. Once upon a time, hopefully, many, many years ago sailors said that women aboard the ship would upset the sea gods and cause treacherous sailing conditions. The truth of this superstition is that the men could not be trusted to stay focused around the women. So, ladies, it was the men that were the problem, not us. As we approach International Women’s Day next week, let’s not forget that!
