Re: Getting Started at 50

I just got back into sailing after being away from it for almost 30 years. Used to race 470s and ran a Westerly 23 along the Maine Coast. Then grad school/career/life (and mountaineering and motor racing) got in the way. A few years ago, when I turned 50, the urge to sail needed to be satisfied, and I rented a few boats. This summer, I picked up a used Vanguard 420 and let me tell you, it's been great. I love that little boat. Taught my rather timid wife how to sail as I re-learned the skills. Now I can't get her off of the trapeze. I figure in a couple more years, we'll get a small cruiser and moor it up Downeast ... the only way a commoner can have a place on the coast.
