Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

Is sailing an elitist sport? Sure it is. Sport is elitist. The median household income of something like $32,000 does not leave a lot of wiggle room for any leisure activity that costs money. OTOH, there are plenty of people who work their ^ss off, and make sailing a priority, even at a shoe string level. More power to those who can operate at higher levels, as long as they don't deride the ones that do not have the same resources.
