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

Wish I could describe the westcoast with the same glowing terms about young starting out gonnabe a cruiser types. All the ingredients seem to still be in place but sucking up to a wealthy boat owner who needs rail meat is the only game showing at the club .Stepping away must be difficult when you've put such effort into student loans, parents' aspirations ,a nearly useless degree in an unsure world. How that is that different from the world I dropped out of.? Well, I didn't have google to answer all my questions and it was uphill both ways to school.
