29 here. Bought a Catalina 30 in the spring. Just had her hauled from the boat yard in MD to my home so that I can get her like new over the winter. I've been teaching myself programming, web and graphic design in hopes that I can earn a living while traveling.

On Monday I leave for my first extended sail from CT to FL.

Very cool - good luck! Are you soloing the boat or have you got crew?

Leaving Monday ! I hope you like cold weather sailing !
How many heaters aboard? Nothing like North Atlantic Sailing in November !!
Stay dry.

As to the Original question of this thread. I started sailing very young and wondered where all the youthful sailors were.
That was 30 years ago,now all those young sailors are all old codgers.
Must be something in the water.

I just turned 37, but I bought my boat when I was 33 and we don't have kids so we tend to identify with folks a bit younger (or considerably older, once the kids have moved out) anyway.



Argyle, when I bought her.

I also had a power boat, a 1969, wooden 27' Carver cruiser when I was in my mid-20's. I have a tendency to buy more boat than I should be able to afford, and then proceed to fix them up.

I am 28, never really saved a penny lived the the reckless consumer life in London for too long.

Was made redundant 3 weeks ago, bought a 32 Contessa that same week, flew out to Lisbon and sailed it to Portimao where I am now fitting her out to cross the Atlantic on the next full moon on the 16th of November.

It is a learning curve!! Loving every minute of it, will cruise till I run out of money or sink

And the picture of my sexy contessa! The keel on that baby will see you safe in the biggest oceans.
