Due to Stephanie's safety and welfare this petition will cease.
Jun 10, 2015 — Stephanie would like to thank you very much for your support. You people are truly wonderful.
Unfortunately due to the disgraceful vulgar responses from the sailing community directed at Stephanie and her mother on the Internet we are forced to shut Stephanie's petition down for her own safety and well being. The last straw was being asked by a Sail Melbourne competitor if she was a transexual. This is the behaviour of the sport's elite.
There is no point a young girl trying to change this sport when influential sectors of it are clearly in the gutter.
Thank you all,
The Coady Family
