More than a few years ago when (as my daughter said), I turned thirty-ten, I realized there are just some things that we won't understand in younger generations.

You know, SBL, Puddinglegs there has a couple of great points. It's not easy being 15, we've all been there so know. And, this sailing obsession is better than lots of other things you could have, of course. But, don't forget that it's a well-rounded person that ends up the most content. I know that this world today is hell-bent on convincing you that you can buy your way into happiness, but that's not the truth. Slow down on the worrying about what you don't have and begin to get-to-know and appreciate what you do have. Life is lot shorter than you can understand right now, but I can assure you, us old geezers get smarter as you get older.

Puddinlegs, I am absolutely supportive of your cause and my pursuit of truth in cause and effect relationships is just another banner to wave for the standards of higher education with a little playfull spirit too. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Small Boat, allow me to try to address gently what others may have said too sharply.
If we didn't care about you, your Mistral, and your love of sailing, we could just ignore your threads. But we do care, and we try to help you.
Unfortunately, somebody has cheated you out of your birthright. They have failed to teach you even the rudiments of spelling and grammar, to include punctuation.
This stuff wasn't invented just so a bunch of old people could give you a hard time. It was invented so people who were too far apart to hear each other talking could communicate and understand each other.
The reason I say you have been cheated is this: by the time I was 15 in American public schools I could spell, punctuate, and write a document that any educated adult could read and comprehend easily, and in fact find little if any to correct at all.
Now it's up to you. Nobody taught you, and you're a long long way from the starting line. Go after literacy like you're going after sailing. Buy books, or find web sites, and teach yourself. Believe me - believe all of us - it will really matter, all your life.
If you want people to treat you with respect you've got to stand proud and strong. Your written self fails that test right now.
Sorry about the long speech. I'm on your side. Really.

We have not heard from small boat lover, where I you. Reading his post seems to me he is texting and maybe using a phone where it is hard to write effectively- maybe he is text while sailing! In any case, in his defense, his writing is not that bad. I think if he tried he could easily correct his errors, I think he is writing more like he is posting on his generation's tweet site. So what is it small boat lover- can you write? I think you can. Where are you?
