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

Start early, start small. I paid for my grandson's week-long sailing camp. They just learn the basics on a Sunfish, but the seed is planted. He goes out with me on my boat, Hunter 29.5, but he finds it kinda boring when compared to the little boat.There's a lot of excitement in pushing the envelope, but knowing you're only going to get wet if you go too far.
