This thread is discriminatory, I'm telling the mods! C'mon, 30's and under is still young.

I'm 39, started sailing at 37. I started with a sturdy, but slow Coronado 25. I was bitten by the racing bug, so I upgraded to a Pearson 30.

It's really good to see these old boats getting new lives as sailboats for younger folks that want to break into sailing. People say that old boats prevent new boats from being built, due to their longevity, but I say that old boats make sailing accessible to people who don't make a huge salary.
