Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

I can only go by my first hand experiences here.

When I mentioned to my co-workers that I was looking at a boat. The first questions out of their mouths was "what size engine?" We are not talking rednecks here.. the idea that I was looking to get a sailboat seemed about as alien to them as if I had ridden a horse to work amd wore homespun clothing. in this digital age, getting anywhere slowly by using the forces of nature does not compute

In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -Buddha
