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...

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.

Barely still 35, own a Montego 19 (sailing) and a Hunter 23' basket case on Strom Thurmond Lake in GA. Will be taking ASA 103-104 this summer, probably at Southcoast Sailing to get some blue water time.
