Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

From my point of view it is elitist as you wish to make it. I see all sorts of sizes of boats on the Great Lakes, as well as inland lakes. Yes bigger is more money, and more headaches, but plenty of people trailor their 20 footers that they paid next to nothing, or nothing for. My tastes run the gamut, but for us blue collar guys, any boat is better than no boat at all. How many of you recall their first boat with longing, whether it was a sunfish, or whatever, and remember how it was, simple, and fun.....
