Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??
Most young folks missed the boat. All one need do is go shatter your body and mind in a war- and you'll have a bit of money, and plenty of reason to stay away from land, people, politics, etc. a profound desire for quiet and soothin sounds like wind and waves- a love of real freedom that few understand, loathing for the weak needed slaves of convenience, and the intestinal fortitude to drive on in the face of insurmountable adversity. All those make up for a lack of 36' of waterline with in mast furling, and a capt to sail your pathetic drunken a** around biscayne bay or the bajamas or bvi what have you.
