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

If you are thinking about getting into the cruising world and pick up a magazine on the subject you are going to see 6 figure boats, stocked with equally expensive equipment and a matching lifestlye....something that a "young person" (or most of us for that matter) counldn't afford. Now if you hang around boats long enough you can discover that the rich ""yachties" aren't the only people that can cruise, that there is cruising "sub-culture" that live at the other end of the economic ladder. But if the appearances put forward by marketing has dissuaded you from even considering it....
