I am 30. My wife is 25. Are we young? Well, I am hoping to be young for the next 30 or 40 years...

How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

I'm a 31 year old teenager.
I had a sunfish starting at 10 years old, and my first Boston Whaler at 14 (my best friend and me purchased). I have only been sailing keelboats for a couple of years now.
I have lived on the water my whole life, enduring weeks of rice and ramen sometimes to afford it.

After I graduated and started work and making some money I bought the 25' sloop and loved it but it felt a littel bit too much like camping out so I sold it 2 years ago and bought the Morgan.

During the weekends I cruise all over the long Island Sound with my girl friend and some of my buddies. We eventually would love to sail down to the bahamas for a year or so taking our time going down the coast to see the sights. The only trouble is I would have to time it when I was in between jobs because I only get about 2 weeks or so with the current company I am with.

I do have to say though I hardly know anyone around my age who sails and if they do they just crew on others boats. I would love to meet more people my age that have their own sailboats. All my buddies have powerboats so there is always a good crowd to raft up to and go cruising with but no other sailors.

Started sailing at 30, am 33 now. Wasn't lucky enough to be raised around boats :/
Never really thought that sailing was accessible to the common man until I started looking into it. Thank god for old boats.

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Checking in. I'm 30 and my wife is 28. We just moved aboard and we're gearing up to begin a 2-year voyage starting this fall. Any other younger folks going to be in Mexico at the end of the year?

Here's us: Take to the sea

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Were in panama looking to cross to the marquesas in march? There are a few young cruisers in Mexico, but us cruisers come from all walks of life, and you might find you get along better with older cruisers with similar views than just age associated ones.

Life's a dream, live it!
