Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

I hear a lot of people who say they are planning for the future, and that is great, but the future has a way of slipping up on us and catching us and we still have not accomplished much of what we set out to do in life. If you plan on being a millionaire at retirement and having paid for your children's extremely expensive education that most of them will not use, then fine, that is great. Just do not postpone living your life in the present for a life you are not promised in the future. It would be a tragedy to live out a life of hard work in preparation for the future and then croak about the time you are ready to spend the money and start living for the present.
