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

For whatever value to this open question may I add that there might be a relationship between the increasing obesity of American youth and their hours spent on-line looking at computer screens, vs. the outdoor pursuits / activities like sailing?

How many hours are Americans spending per week on-line?
Subtract those hours from outdoor activities.

There you have it.
