Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?
Formula One, Football, the World Cup, pick any premier event and there will be super boxes and members only areas. So what?
If you're willing to invest a little elbow grease you can have a boat on the water for a grand. Or if you have the means you can spend over a million on a sailboat.
Yet you can both wake up in the same quiet anchorage, have a cup of coffee, watch the occasional fish jump and the birds doing their thing. Isn't that the opposite of elitist?
Not to mention most sailors I know are anything but elitist.
