Young people sail in

I would love to meet up somewhere on the gulf for a sail in. Dry Tortugas or the FL Keys would accomodate people from both the Atlantic and the Gulf Coasts.

I am 21 and have a Westsail 28 I am currently refitting. Hopefully be back in the water by summer. Liking the idea of the "young people sail in".Seems that there are quite of few of us younger sailors.

My wife and I are both 30 and we own a Northern 1/4 ton (Mirage 24). At our club there's a very clear generation gap- out of about 40 boats, only 3 are owned by those under 40. Us young'uns need to stick together!

My wife and I are 32. I think we could be the youngest couple sailing on our lake. There is a hueg gap in age on the lake. I think most young people think it cost a lot to sail or it looks diffi. you them. We just got a 30 foot islander we are doing a restro on hope to be in water at ice off.

P.S. We have one son 5 he loves the boat.

Just under the wire

My Bride and I are 35. We had a C&C 24 for the last 3 seasons and just upgraded to a Catalina 310. There is one other under 40 couple at our dock. The rest are all older, for sailors that is. For power boats, there are a number of under 40 people at the dock. Our dock is heavily on the power boat side. Of approximately 100 slips, only 5-6 are sail boats.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

I'm 26 and bought my first boat about 6 months ago. I've been on boats my whole life, and have driven ships, but this is my first adventure into sailing and I love it.

be excellent to each other

Looking to go further?

Hey Im looking to sail from SD to Peru! how does that sound?...... here in San Diego. I have a 28 foot Cal Jenson that I was lucky enough to gain owner ship of. I have put every extra cent I have had into her over the past year and now she's ready to sail on a moments notice, which was my goal. There is still a lot to be desired though as always. I have sailed down to Mexico already but my big dream is to spend months sailing down Baja and coming back up in the Sea of Cortez and just roughing it. I lived in Tijuana for 2 and half years and have gotten my taste of Mexico but now I wish to return via mi valero. Anyone else here in SD?[/QUOTE]
