What do you attribute this to? Are members going to other forums? Are they just getting tired of the internet? Or are you saying that there are fewer people who sail?
I'm not quite sure why!maybe because sailing can be quite physical and even I don't look forward to spending as much time on my boat as I once did,old age is a bitzh lol also the truth is as most people get older they also get crankier/grumpier,I know that the older i get the less social I am.as for numbers I don't think there are fewer sailors just younger [old sailors never die they just spin yarns from the comforts of home]
