I don't know what the statistics are but I think its safe to say that overall sailing isn't as popular as it once was, maybe it is even the least popular now that it has been in modern history ? I don't know. It sure seems like there were smaller more accessible boats in the 1970's when the baby boomers were young and sailing, but maybe that isn't really true, I don't know.
