I've heard that the industry can be very sexist, is this true?

All industries are susceptible to different forms of discrimination. Like any industry, the yachting world can experience discrimination in the form of sexism, racism and ageism. Practically speaking, due to the international nature of the industry you do not have the same level of protection against such discrimination as you would expect in shore side employment. Having said that, many people enjoy full and interesting careers without experiencing such problems.
