Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Im 33, my wife is 32. We have both been living aboard for around 4 years now. Going to finally get a little cruising in come this march. We have only met 6 under 35 boats in the past 4 years so even in our 30's' we are still the minority around these parts. Hopefully we will meet more when we get out there.

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Hey, i'm 18 years old about to graduate high school. I know what your thinking, but i bought my first boat a couple of years ago a Coronado 23. I know it's a lot smaller then most of the boats owned by people on this site but hell I was 16 when i bought it and only had $8 left in my bank account after i bought it. I guess that ether shows determination or a spontaneous kid. I'll tell you though i don't regret buying it one bit i live up on the great lakes, lake Michigan to be more spastic. I am trying to find a plan for the upcoming years and am looking at larger more suitable offshore boats i hope to be sailing the Caribbean in the next 5 years. Side note I want to get a ketch i know not necessarily the best but i love the look (i know a shallow reason) but if any one knows of some good cheaper and smaller ketches please let me know!

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

I'm 32 in Los Angeles, And have had my boat since I was 15. Found it in the Recycler News Paper (craigslist of the old world). It's a 21 foot MacGregor Venture. I see lots of youtube video's of groups of young people our age and younger sailing all over the world on great and not so great boats. I've learned to sail the hard way by experience, and enjoyed every minute of it. I have sailed to Catalina and am getting ready for an Anacapa Island sail. We're out here you just have to hollar! Good Luck my friend and Fair winds.

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

I am 33 and learned to sail 5 years ago, I sail regularly on the Boston Harbor.

I don't own a boat though; it doesn't make sense given the abundance of sailing clubs here in Boston. At least not until I can cut the income cord from my shore based job. Last season I got out for 60+ days and my nav app recorded 1385 miles; neither counting most of my days as PHRF racing crew. I share a membership with a group of friends, this year we have access to 2 boats at a time and I paid less than $1000 for the season.

I will likely be buying a boat this season or next so that I can keep learning. We shall see.

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

I am 34, and just purchased a 24' Dufour, sailing out of Berkeley Marina in SF Bay.

I've been a renter for several years, and did the Baja Haha back in '07. Also sailed with my dad on his Ranger 23 when I was a kid, so not inexperienced, but still new to the sailing life and to owning my own hole in the water

My hope (dream) is to sail through the Med for my retirement, but I'm a LOOOONG way from that. My wife is 3 months pregnant now, so I expect a siginificant dropoff in water time and boat kitty funds...

25 on a 37 gulfstar
Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

My fiancee and I left Charleston SC at 24, at the end of March 2014. We are currently in the Dominican Republic in Luperon. We have a Gulfstar 37 1976 and love the life, the boat, everything. Here in Luperon we have met maybe 4 boats at and under 35. 1 boat also 25 (our birthdays were june/july) and 1 boat 19 (Parents boat, hasn't left the harbor yet)
We know we are not the only ones, but 95 percent of our neighbors in the harbors are between 45 and 70

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

Well... that's a little hard to follow but here goes. I'm 32 the wife is 27. We currently own a Catalina 27 we sail out of Alameda. Like so many others we are the youngest I've seen at our marina. We plan to move up to a bigger boat next year and head to Mexico.

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

I was 58 but just celebrated my ten year anniversary with my beautiful thirty-three year old Brazilian wife on our new 57' Steel Ketch in Kota Kinabalu. To the best of my knowledge I am now like 34 or 35. Amazing what sailing and young ladies can do for longevity

Hey! This is age discrimination!

OK, when I was that age I had an O'day 19, then a Spirit 23, and then a brand spankin' new Catalina 25.
