Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??
Nah......you didn't offend me. Though the really kewl wooden boat "sub culture" isn't what it used to be and the wooden boat festival has become more of a tourist attraction/money maker. People ask me why I don't put my boat in the wooden boat festival and my response is "I wouldn't pay money so other people can pay money to look at my boat when I can park it between two plastic boats for free (well no more than what I am paying anyway) and they can look at it for free."
The kewlest funkiest people in the "wooden boat sub culture" don't have anything to do with festival.
