Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
Does this explain your attitude to different boats?
For example, I find the Laser to be the perfect boat for me. It was invented when I was 22.
I can't imagine wanting to sail a Star (designed in 1910, way before I was born), and I think that foiling Moths are totally against the natural order of things.
