Im 23. I started learning to sail when I was around 10, did it for a few years and then stopped. I started again about a year ago, im hooked. Located in San Diego and hoping to own a boat in a few years. Its hard being a student and trying to have money.

Im 30 and my wife is 29... currently waiting until spring to close on a Hans Christian 33. Plan to live aboard for a few years to save up a little extra cash and than shove off. We'll see how it all goes though

Ahoy me Hearteez, I've been a big reader of this forum for some years now. Im a 32 yr old 100ton master, sail/tow and just closed on my 4th sloop. An islander 36 (76' Gurney dsgn). Im selling my ericson 29 and takin off on my first loong voyage this fall. The Chesapeake has been my cruising grounds since I got bit by a tartan 30 in my early twenties and jumped in w/ both feet, got my first boat @ 26, and moved from my apt. to my catalina 27. This thread has inspired me to finally post as I am young and dont expect to meet many cruisers my age. Im headed south>thorny path>and mayb NW carribean via the windward passage(if my pockets and/or boat doesnt brake first) Nice to see everyone chiming in. ill be looking for crew during various legs. Im not married and will single-handing some. Now that ive registered, this isnt the last you'll be hearin from this urban pirate...

My boat

I'm 35 and last spring purchased a Hunter 285 to sail on Lake Norman in North Carolina. I plan to race it this weekend and tear up some Catalinas and Newports!
