I'm 25, by boyfriend is 26. We have been living aboard our 1964 Cheoy Lee 35' for 2 years. Planning on leaving for circumnavigation next October. We live on a mooring. There are a lot of young (23-35) people out there. I think you will find younger people on moorings because (1)it is cheaper than being in a marina, (2)there is no marina manager there to yell at you for partying late into the night, and (3)there is way more privacy.

I just turned 60 and will be 29 on my next birthday and still sail my Prindle 16 from the trapeze in the ocean. It's great to hear from some of you young sailer out there with older boats that I sailed on when the boats were new.

Oh, dude, you have no idea. The journey from 30 - 39 was a LOT longer than the journey from 39 - 47. It happened in the blink of an eye.

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased

I am 21 I have been sailing for the past year and have always wanted to live on a boat so since I am 21 and home life has not been the best these past years I took out a loan and went on a search for the perfect boat which I recently found in a Watkins 27 and I am now the proud owner and skipper of my little 21 aptly named the "TIPSY GYPSY" She is my house, sailboat and project. While she is in immaculate shape there are always things to do, I have to say this has been a long journey to get where I wanted after about a year or so of searching and being broke as hell its the best thing I think I could have ever done to recover form a down turning mental state. I know long post but I have to brag as I am happy as a clam.
