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

My father just got into sailing because I introduced him into it (he is in his 50's). He always wanted a sailboat, but walking by the marina and looking at all the boats, he had always imagined that it was only a rich man's sport. The impression of inaccessibility is what kept him from sailing all these years. Now he is a regular sailing obsessive just like most of us here
