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.
