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

New poster here, throwing in my two cents.

I'm 29 years old, looking at buying my first sailboat. I took a basic sailing course at the local sailing club and sailed weekly over the course of last summer.

This spring I looking to buy something in the 22-25 foot range while spending between $1500-$3000. My goal is to have a boat to tool around on/cruise on the weekends on lake Michigan. I've been checking craigslist and ebay for the right deal. I live the adventure side of sailing and lower fuel costs over a powerboat.
