Re: Where are the younger people?

I'm 42 and had a young Coast Guard maybe 20-22 ask me while they were doing a safety inspection ask me what I do out there? What do you do out on the ocean when sailing? I was a little struck by the question, humm I sail. The whole CG crew all under 30 just looked at me with this deer in the headlights look like why? I couldn't get over it myself for the rest of the day. And when I do take friends out for day sails they like it but very few ask to go out again.(that just might be me) We are different. Sailing is different. I don't know why the CG crew had a hard time understanding it, they are ocean people right? Any way,I don't know why there are so few young people out there but the people who I run into are some of the most interesting people I know.
