Any older sailors out there who have made some adaptations either to their boats or to their techniques for sailing as a senior citizen?
Any hints you would care to pass along to other older sailors?
I'm 61, been sailing since I was 18, owned four boats, sailed a lot of other people's boats, had a master's license for 20 years, and now that I'm getting older I find that I need to modify my boat and my techniques. Some are little things, like keeping a magnifying glass in the chart table. Some are bigger things, like adding lazy jacks and bringing lines back to the cockpit.
How about you?
