BentSailor will become famous soon enough
Guess with all the people posting in one of the tow threads, I should put my name in the hat as well. I'm thirty with a twenty-nine year old wife. We've four boys between the ages of four & eleven.

We've been sailing for just under a year now on a small variety of dinghies (16ft and under). Working our skills up for the planned family boat in another years time (or thereabouts). Funnily enough, I've always been what my mother nicely called an "old soul" and my father more honestly labelled a "cynical old b@stard". So while we're under the average age of the other sailors in the area, it never really bothered me.
