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

I was 35 about 21 years ago. Got my first sailboat (West Wight Potter 19) and sailed it for 10 years. The kids got bored with sailing and wanted jet skis. We got a pair of three seaters. Kept them for a few years, but the kids got to be dare-devils so I sold the toys and bought a 21 ft ski boat. They loved wakeboarding for about 3 summers, but got interest in the opposite sex, so I sold the ski boat and bought myself another sailboat. I guess that's a full circle. I still feel 35 though.

We would love to cruise in the Carribbean..and have (not on our own boat) in the Abacos and the BVI, however that really isnt in the cards for us at this point...long term in another story all together. What we can do and plan to do right away is put our boat in the Chesapeake and do weekends, vacations, and extended weekends on the boat exploring and generally sailing as often as possible. With the bay being little more then an hour away from us it puts us in a great situation to be able to start sailing now instead of waiting for the future.

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

Not sure I qualify, but I'm 39.

I sail a Morgan 22 out of St. Petersburg, FL. (Gulfport) My wife goes occasionally, but my two kids can't get enough of it. Now that the heat that finally broken to some degree, we'll be doing a lot of overnighters. Usually, it's just me out there singlehanding when I go during the week.

I'm 29, almost 30 (gulp) and own an O'day 25... Though I have noticed that many of my slip neighbors are also around my age!

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

I am 25 with a Raider 33 currently in Charleston, SC. I work 5 weeks on 5 off so have plenty of cruising time.

Next week is back to work, but when I get back to these chilly waters I am off to Marsh Harbour. Any takers for a January cruise south?

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

I'm 33 from sunny Florida and have lived aboard in both a 29' Seafarer and 27 Morgan full time for the past 3yrs with my wife age 27 and 2 kids. We love it!!! Why spend 30 years paying for a dream home, just so an association can tell you what color to paint your house, when you can travel 2/3 of the world by water. we traveled most of the Caribbean. Planing to sail down to the VI in a 40+ cc next year. Would live no other way...

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

I've been saving and I'm finally at a point in my life, 30 years old, where I can afford to sail away... First I need to get the training. Any advise where to go in the Seattle Puget sound Area?
