Wasn't kept back, but being born Christmas Day I was right on the line and was put in with mostly younger kids. So I guess I was 12 when I got the pram.

A friend of mine bought a MacGregor 36 back in the early 90's, and I got to sail it a few times. It's fast and fun, like an overgrown Hobie Cat, if there is any wind. It was not fast in light air,...
