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

you make a good point.. but then look at any of the "extreme sports".. marketing would have you think that if you did not own the latest and greatest tools.. you are going to crash and burn.

I admit that I, myself, own a Carbon Fibre Mountainbike.,, but if I am honest, except for being lighter, it is really no better than the older chromemoly one it replaced (the older bike was stolen, or I would still be riding it)
