The "sailing while older' thread has sure brought out the senior citizens!

I'm not far off, but not there yet.. I do have to say that hearing of all stories lately I'm inspired to keep plugging away. We do have friends approaching 70, and another into his 80s still sailing, often short/singlehanded.

Unlike not so many years ago, "70" doesn't seem so far away
