My wife and I are 29 and 27, we now own our second sail boat a Union 36, our first was a Catalina 30. We're planning on sailing the Caribbean then to New Zealand, but one thing at a time. We're heading out in a few weeks. Should be a good time.

Life's a dream, live it!

27 and a girl

I'm the youngest sailor and liveaboard in my area by far, and a girl to boot. I live aboard my 30' Islander MK II, and want to trade up to a Baba 35, Tashiba 36 or Union 36 (if I can ever afford or find one in my area!). I moved aboard for cost savings and adventure, when most of my friends are looking at houses and paying off college debts. Any other young sailors in the Puget Sound area? My plans are to head up to the San Juans and perhaps Canada this summer.

My wife and I are doing the same thing.. sort of. We had a Catalina 30 here in North Vancouver, we sold it, bought a nice Union 36 in Florida and are going to cruise for a while in a warmer climate. I know there are a few younger live aboards up here, not many but some. I definitely suggest Desolation sound, We went up last summer and it's pretty awesome.

Life's a dream, live it!

I'm 30 and my girlfriend is 27. Just got a Catalina 22 that I'm fixing up this past weekend, but started sailing with a buddy of mine on Lake travis a few years ago on his Laser and his Catalina 27. He's 28 and made his first trip across the pond to Ireland when he was 18. The C-22 is perfect for me right now as I need something that is trailerable since my girlfriend is in the Navy and we will be moving around a bit for the next few years. Most of my friends prefer to drive their boats to Devils Cove or Carlos and Charlie's, park them and get drunk. I'm fortunate to be with a woman that has as much of a passion for the ocean as I do, and almost as much of an adrenaline junkie as I am. It's a perfect arrangement, as my screen name suggests, I'm quite fond of traveling and get bored if I'm in one place to long. It's cool to see others in my age bracket getting into sailing. I see it around here more frequently than you might think.

T.J.

My wife and I are 28 and 27. We recently quit our jobs and are in school working on teachers certifications. We are doing the intracoastal and hopefully the Bahamas next winter. Blogging our adventure, we figure its a once in a lifetime opportunity, might as well do it young before kids.
