Abstract Sport and technology are two cultural spheres which traditionally have been valorized according to masculine definitions of bodily skill and expertise. This paper analyses how media representations of sailing anchor images of men's and women's bodies in ways that tend to naturalise the technological and sporting superiority of men, while also marginalizing, containing, and incorporating visions of women. The authors suggest that sport, technology, and the media need to be reconsidered in ways that articulate the historically specific and socially constructed nature of human bodies, sexual identities, and relations of power between men and women.
