I turned 60 in Oct 2016 and decided to get back into sailing beach cats. I purchased a getaway and have had a great time with it. Sailed to Cayo Costa Fl 2 weeks ago with It. So.... I must have the fever because I purchased an 84 Nacra 5.2 last week. I hope my butt isn't writing checks I can't cash. :D

I'm 62, sailing Hobie Cats since I bought my first in 1979, when I was 25.

I am 83. I bought my H-16 new in '85. I just turned it over to my daughter and her husband but plan to sail with them occasionally this season.

I am 51 and learned to sail when I was 10. I had a Hobie 14 when I was a teenager. I haven't sailed since my 20s and now getting back to it with my 1984 H16 I call Yellow Fever, which I should've called her Time Machine. :D
