Boat, gf and career are all 3s. I wonder what that means...

2, but I'm just a wannabe cruiser. Not yet. Basic keelboat certified as of a couple of weeks ago so I'm on my way (no boat yet).

Re: Forum members/cruiser age poll

Afunny thing happed in Hopetown, Bahamas this winter.....Diane sailed into the harbor from the states on her Gemini Cat. Someone called her brother who was in the harbor non his custom SS 57 Ketch and said" Hey Bill... you are no longer the oldest person in the harbor!"

Bill is 80 and his sister Diane is several years older! "Lady Di" got a 20 conch horn salute... richly deserved.

If you don't have a plan, it's only a dream.

#7

and we're only water dabblers...
occasionally race, day sail, shorter charters/cruises, a bit of helping run regattas, a little bit of everything on the water

Re: Forum members/cruiser age poll

Add two more 11's to the list!

And here on Insatiable II we have a motto:

We realize that we can not be forever young, but we can indeed be forever immature!

And cruising for the past 25+ years has helped us live up to our words.

Cheers,

Jim

She has just learn't to say 'boat' but she has 3000nm under her belt already so she figures she gets a vote.
