Ahoy there! There, got a cliche out of the way. Just starting sailing @ 51 years old. Sailed a bit as crew on cousin's Cal20 in Kaneohe, HI when I was an early teen and told myself I'd start again after I turned 50. Theory is it's easier on the body than mountain climbing. Look forward to learning things about boats and maybe meeting some folks in the Seattle area to crew for to get some time on the water.

So what happens when you become an old salt? You can't change your user name. You'll still be sailingnewb.

If you're helping someone and expecting something in return, you're doing business not kindness.
