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

The idea of what's fun has changed for kids. Few of them know how to work with their hands or find that a desirable thing to do. That's probably why more are not fixing up older boats as we used to do. They are all programmed from birth now to shoot for some career goal. Then they get in HUGE debt due to the utterly outrageous cost of the big college scam. Kids are on a treadmill in our sick society and have no time to be kids anymore.
