Re: What does "too old to sail mean"?

How old is too old? I don't know yet but at 74 I can see it on the horizon.

One of the things that has kept me going is sailing multihulls. I've been on cats and tris for decades but it wasn't until I went out on a friend's racer/cruiser monohull that I realized how awkward I'd become.
Various injuries and surgeries have left the bottom half of my body relatively feeble, but I can still singlehand my cat.
She's for sale now,but only so I can buy a folding trimaran that I can dock on a trailer when I'm not using her.
Aside from that, roller furling, autopilot and an electric windlass are valuable crew on Mandolin.
