I bought my first boat, a Cal 27, when I was 25, then bought my Tartan when I turned 29. Now I'm 43 (Does this make me MIDDLE AGE??). STILL can't get enough of sailing. My Wife is a few years my senior and she still loves it too (the sailing that is )
It really doesn't matter the age as long as you are young at heart and are still nimble enough to handle the boat without being a danger to yourself, crew and other boats. When I'm no longer able to safely go boating.....I'll have to make some tough decisions
