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

Me and my wife live on a Hurley 30/90 in Charleston,sc and we're planning on cruising the Caribbean next year. I got into sailing in my 20's with a 22' O'Day and just fell in love. In Charleston there are lots of people in their 20's-30's living aboard and crusing

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

Wow, it's wonderful to see such a large community of young people living aboard & cruising out there my fiance & I picked up a Grampian 26' for $100 plus moving costs ($1k) from Provincetown, MA to Halifax. It took a year and about a grand to fix her up, buy sails, a boom, custom spreaders and make major modifications to the cabin including updating the electrical, replacing the head, resolving the pluming & seacocks as well as modifying a camper water tank into two separate freshwater & holding tanks. Finally sailing south in November to St. Pete pier and looking forward to continuing my education. It's what we've always wanted!

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

I'm 36. We are usually the youngest wherever we go. When we meet new people, they always ask us how we're able to do it so young. It's great because you can learn so much from others who are older/more experienced, etc. and some of the older people we've met have proven that you're only as old as you feel, but it is refreshing to hang out with people our age sometimes!

33 here, just getting into sailing though. Don't own a boat yet, but I have no doubt I will before too long

Wish I'd done this ten years ago though. Should have started much sooner.

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

Hi,
Me and my wife are both 34 and have been sailing for 4 years now on our -70 Albin Vega. Due to the short season up here in Finland we mainly spend our 4 week summer vacation sailing the Gulf of Finland coast with our two cats. We've been planning on a longer, maybe a year long, cruise at some point. We do some
weekend sailing as well, but not as much as I'd like to.

Buy a yacht first, it will cure you of being a dirt dweller. Too many cool places to sail in QLD.....

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

Oh I completely agree . . .

Someone please invite me aboard your yacht !

Went for a sail a while back around Saint Helena Island, Green Island and Peel Island . . . I cant believe what I saw and I WANT MORE !!!

Sailing to a new Island or dropping anchor somewhere mysterious and beautiful is pure ecstasy in my mind!!!!
