Re: what do you do when you can't sail anymore?

Well arsenelupiga, I managed the "easiest", even did the second easiest. Alas the third one didn't work so well. And my doctor bulk-billed, and I was a public patient, so it didn't cost me anything.. But, alas, no more sailing.

Re: what do you do when you can't sail anymore?

in passing : don't understand why people give up sailing and tour in an RV.

no interest for me until (a) RV have autopilot (b) you can drink whilst driving

cheers,

Re: what do you do when you can't sail anymore?

I have been underway for 15 years, and am now 80. Barbara joined me 10 years ago, same age. We support our 5/7 life style with two rentals and SS. 5 months on "Someday" and 7 at our little farm. I love the split. Work on boat 5 months, and on farm for 7, always busy, but quite happy with it. Barbara is nearing the point where getting from "Someday" to the dinghy and back is quite difficult, so we spend more time where there are water taxis, or a marina. We also now port hop rather than long passages; last couple years, two nights at sea is about it. But still lots of pleasure; who knows how much longer.
