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

I think I live in a place where loads of young people come to find cheap used sail boats, move on to them , start fixing them up and sail away. So It seem's to me like more and more young people are doing it. Maybe it doesn't happen else where and I'm seeing the bulk of it. Not the competion club sailing. The living on the sea sailing. Not the weekend warrior sailing, the Salty dog stuff, kid's that work on schooners and cattle-marans. I'm seeing a revival in the cruising world of 20 somethings. When I was a kid in the 70's and 80's, cruising the Bahama's with the Grandparents, there where loads of young budget cruiser's. I couldn't wait to be old enough to do it.
