Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I moved to Central America when I was 19 for the same reasons. The Financial ones, I'm fine with the women in the states. I like Girls who I can carry a conversation with, same humor and basic back ground, language. But have found keeping my boat is more affordable, and my American earned money, as little that I earn, puts me in good way down there. That is another reason key West has been a home base. It's a few day's sail from Central America. An easy commute. Work in the states, save some money and sail back down. Now as a Merchant Marine, I think I've found the perfect ballance of work and sail. 10 day's ago, I was sailing around the one of the pretty'est Caribbean Islands I've ever been to. In 4 Day's I'll be back down there doing it again....with my American girl.
