I'm 30 with a Challenger 40' ketch. Like most of these posters I'm trying to get her set up for longer-term cruising, hopefully do Hawaii in a year or two, then see where it goes from there. I owned a few other boats before this one, with partners, this is the first one I bought on my own. 40' is a big jump from 27'! Sailing is expensive, my guess is that's why you don't see more younger folks out there. Any younger folks in the SF bay reading this - ping me and let's go sailing.

Cheers,
h

Just under the bar here...

First off, being 35 I appreciate just making the cut in the 'young people' category! Secondly we recently bought a Santana 22 for learning in San Francisco bay with the hopes of Sunday making it out beyond Golden Gate somewhere down the line (probably in a bigger boat tho).

I started sailing sunfish sailboats at boy scout camp when I was very young. I then went on a couple trips to the keys to sail the BSA Seabase high adventure twice.

Now I'm 23 and own a '82 Starwind 22.

34

I'm 34 with an un-named 16 ft skiff that in my dreams is a 34 foot catamaran! Soon..soon I tell myself...I think being young-GER is an advantage..we know technology, the world seems small to us still and we can stay up late on watch!

Hey Everyone,

I posted in this Thread already but was wondering how people are managing post grad with cruising? I am 32 and the SO is 31, she is finishing her masters this coming Spring. We are debating if taking a year off to cruise before she finds a job would make sense, or waiting a bit.

The ideal setup would be her finding something that we could do while actually cruising. She is in International Economic Development and Planning, so looking for research positions that involve far away places, heh. Would love to hear from couples that took off after finishing school rather then getting sucked in to a cubical.

I have two semesters left of my under grad. I have been posting to websites requesting teachers in China. I also have thought about doing something with World Teach or the JET program. Perhaps I will just sail down to the Abacos and spend a year or two working/learning about diesel engines.

The Biology degree is just for getting jobs in other countries. The practical stuff is equally valuable to me.
