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

Also hanging out in the Sound. 32 now, but got my first boat (Potter 19) when I was 27 and living in Austin (sailed Lake Travis and the Gulf coast). Just moved to Seattle, and still have the Potter. Considering upgrading to a larger boat now that I have more water to play in. But, in the meantime until the twice-the-size-of-my-current-boat-itis really bites (I'm already daydreaming about a Pearson 36 and C&C 34), I'm loving to sail around the Sound in my Potter. Round and round, in the Sound.

Oh, I figured out how you can tell the transplant boats in the PNW that come from sunnier places: the boats would have bimini's and no dodgers. I'm guilty of being one of them.

29 here. Bought a 27' a little over a year ago and live aboard on the east coast most of the year with the pooch. Lived on a 37' with a couple buddies for a few years in NYC. Took a shoestring trip down to Key West and back a couple years ago with em, got back, got to work, and bought my own. Home used to be the mountains, but fell in love with sailing.

23 years old, been sailing since I was 7 days old (napping under the dodger more like it!) Had a Columbia 29' for a few years then an Ericson 32' for the last five, just picked up a Islander 37' MS.

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

hi

35 here, the wife and I. Bought or first boat almost 2 years ago, Shipman 28, and last Saturday upgraded to a Catalina 36 mkII.

We live in Hong Kong and I must admit that we only know one other boat with crew below 35, most of the other boat owners are well over 55

cheers

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

My husband and I are in our late 20's and just bought our second boat this month and keep it on the Chesapeake. Neither of us come from sailing families, so learning and acquiring a boat was expensive, but worth it so far. We were both really interested in it, and decided we wanted to learn before we had kids. We took lessons a few years ago and then bought a little cheapie boat to see if we liked it before getting in too deep. We're always the youngest sailors we meet around the bay, but we've learned a ton from our marina neighbors and people we meet. When we take my parents out, people always assume its their boat and are so surprised when we tell them its ours, but usually its a good conversation starter... people always want to throw in their advice, and I generally like hearing it.
