Have you changed your sailing practices or equipment as you've gotten older? Would you like to share suggestions that I can use in an article about sailing after 60?
For example, as the years stacked up I found myself taking greater care to avoid fatique and hypothermia (e.g. shorter passages, warmer foul weather gear, a better dodger, more hot beverages). I can't say whether that was necessitated by age, or just me gaining common sense.
Do you have age-related physical limitations and how do you keep them from interferring with your enjoyment of sailing? Are you taking extra precautions to avoid slip-and-fall injuries? Changed your sail inventory, rigging, winches, etc, to get the same outcome with less strength?
Would love to hear your ideas.
