Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Well, I sneak in, I will be 35 shortly. I sailed some growing up. Got the bug bad again last year. Took some ASA classes earlier in the year. I bought a pearson triton about a month ago. I agree I am usually the youngest at the marina where the boat is kept. That being said most of the folks older than me there are way cooler than than some would suppose for their age. One of my faves is a 70ish yr old retired boston police detective. He has a saying for everything, and they are by and by hilarious and illuminating at the same time. Almost none of my friends are into sailing. Quite a few have smokers that cause them to pour money into the oil companies coffers every summer. They laugh at me because of how long it takes me to get somewhere for a meetup, I laugh at them when they break the bank filling up.
