Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

Seriously, when factoring in slip fees, operating and maintenance costs, he and I probably don't spend any more money than someone with an RV who travels the country, or who likes to restore old Chevy's in their garage, or someone with a powerboat equipped with a large V-8 engine.

However, the perception of the way we invest our time and energy seems to give this elitist vibe in the US.
So true

It is therapy and mesmerizing to me still after 45 years of sailing
I never thought about it till you put it to words. That's exactly right.
