Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

Rather watch the posts from Paulo and others of the single handed ocean sailors. Those guys are
1. nuts
2. real sailors dealing with real weather
3.have my never ending respect given their skill set and self reliance.

See the rigid sail multi hull crowd are very athletic, dealing with cutting edge technologies and fun to watch briefly. Unfortunately, it leaves me cold. Kind of like basketball now that the professional game is so unlike any we used to play in the pick up games of my youth.
