Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

What does 'sailing' have to do with the 'Americas Cup?' That's like asking if driving a car is elitist because Formula One racing is expensive.

You can probably watch 'yacht racing' every day in the summer if you want to. My club (dues is $50 / year) races numerous series in the summer and you can watch for free. The other local yacht clubs have similar racing on other days Is that 'common man' enough for you?
