I'm glad you started this thread. I am 27, and have a 36' Catalina in Hampton, VA. I haven't met anyone within a decade of my age around the docks, and none of my "normal" friends are remotely interested in sailing. If anyone here lives around Hampton and wants to go PM me.
I'm also 27 in Norfolk, about to take my first sailing lesson, and would love to practice after getting the basics. Let me know if you'd like some company. email: rachel.ov01@yahoo
