Re: How Old is Too Old to Learn to Sail ?

Why does this remind me of Jethro Tull...

"... And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
his wind-whipped words echo the final take
and he hits the trunk road doing around 120
with no room left to brake.

And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die.
No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die."

Too old? Nah, it is mind over matter. If you don't mind, then it doesn't matter.

Most 20-25 year old boys would be looking for a girl around there own age not interested in being taken by a 56 year old man- no matter how good of shape youíre in!

Re: How Old is Too Old to Learn to Sail ?

I note that the OP has not been back on CF since starting this thread .

That's the problem with youngsters of today - no attention span .

Re: How Old is Too Old to Learn to Sail ?

One can learn the basics of sailing in one day with good instruction and benign conditions. To learn to sail well in all conditions ? maybe a lifetime!
