    Bob, I think you can. Provided that you have an AARP membership and do not use a catheter.

    BTW: anyone who is cringing at this exchange has NOT developed the social skills required of a singlehander.

    Great points. I like the better package kind of approach, beginning with cycling and cardio.

    Yet I am confused of your set up... does the catheter require a separate holding tank or can you use an adapter with the cockpit drain?

    I started getting mail from AARP several years ago. My 84 y/o Mom says DON'T join 'cause she doesn't trust 'em!

    As for the catheter, I'm in the pee bottle camp for the boat. Which reminds me of a story about Skip that I CAN'T tell!
    NO, I can't - don't ask!

    Ok, I'll bite, please, please, tell us the story Bob

    As for AARP, I just got my first letter from them. I suppose my name eventually got tagged with "sailing" on of the junk lists, which I suppose equated with advanced age...

    No really, that was for Skip and a couple friends who have heard the story privately - or were there!

    I am working on another contribution to Skip's thread; "working on" meaning trying to remember the details. It has to do with the IYC junior program, a red-haired girl and a couple El Toros - and was one reason I was never destined to be a rock star sailor.

    Hey, I see FURTHER's 3BF finish time finally got posted. He finished right next to you Alex!

    ....and another thing. Supporting Bob's observation regarding the average age of new boat buyers, has anyone else noticed the sudden appearance of geezers doing amazingly smart things like sailing in advertising products like Cialis and sailing in the BVI? Those folks know their demographics.

    Cool. It's definitely nice to finish next to a quick boat like that, although I didn't see anything around me at that time, I was too busy getting my genoa wrapped around the headstay

    That's because it's being towed (look carefully). The jokes abound . . .
