Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?
I've been cruising and living aboard on less than $300 a month, for decades. I could never afford to live ashore on that amount. Doesn't exactly put me in the "Elite" category.
When I do offer people simpler and far more affordable ways of doing things, those who want to make it "elitist" get me kicked off the web sites and chatlines. I consider that sheer flattery. Sure glad they don't identify me as being one of them.
