Re: Where are the younger people?

Based on my observations, every since the '70s, sailing has been a dying sport/activity. Many of us who own boats are older, and grew up during the heyday of sailing. Sailing does not have great appeal among most younger folks, for the reasons Bubblehead articulated. Given the demographics, we can expect a significant decrease in the sport/activity toward mid-century, when we die.
