Re: As a late starter am I too old to do serious cruising?

My friend just completed a triathalon and was one of the first finishers. She's 62. Still plenty of time for sailing. Welcome aboard matey.

Congratulations you are not going to be chasing a tiny white ball around manmade gardens...
there is a zen.. or peace or oneness with nature - earth- higher power.. or what ever or however you can describe it .....with being under sail..

Just finished reading the story of Harry Heckel, who completed a solo circumnavigation at the age of 89...

Once again proving, you are only too old when you BELIEVE that you are too old!

Re: As a late starter am I too old to do serious cruising?

Whew. I'm glad to hear this. I'm about to turn 65 and have been refitting a 30 year old catamaran on a tropical island for the past three years. Glad to hear we're both not too old to sail.
