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

I wonder if it's perception more than anything. As in it's less that there's fewer young people sailing and more that we have a much larger quantity of older people cruising than ever before.

People are living longer and are in better health in old age these days. Maybe the surge in popularity of sailing in the 60's/70's created a boom population of sailors that are still with us today. The younger sailors are there, it's just that they aren't the entire crowd anymore.
