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

It's obvious that the world is full of weirdos, wackos and losers mingling with the normal folks.Sometimes it's hard to figure which category you belong to. But with all the whining and sniveling about how hard life is I thought I'd tell you about today, My 70 th birthday and I sailed the boat I built 40 years ago for 6 hours in the sun with 12 knots of wind. The guests on board , all educated ,interesting and moneyed, enjoyed the sailing and left me with over 12 hundred dollars for the cruising fund. I do this for 3 months a year and spend winters in Thailand . I realize this is a tough life but I've made my choices and I have to live with that .
