Question Senior sailors ??

Okay, I have to admit it, just this once. I am getting older (sigh). I am a single female and I turn 62 August 3d, and I was wondering how many other sailors are adapting to getting older. Are you having problems ? Do you sail as much or less, do you have physical limitations that prevent you from enjoying sailing. Or is this one of those things were the words "It all depends" pertains.

Er, maybe I should have used a better phrase

Any how, what issues effect the enjoyment of sailing for seniors ? Are there message boards for those with senority in the sailing community ?

If you have given up sailing/crusing because of health or age now what do you do?

Just wondering, I am in a reflective mood today thinking maybe I should take advantage of the years I have left and go sailing as often as I can and just enjoy what I have while I have it.

Or am I making much ado about nothing to semi'quote the Bard.
