ISAF might be a place to start. They're the one outfit that's supposed to represent the sport of sailing worldwide. Send them an email and see what you get. Their focus on racing may skew the numbers downwards from the actual total, but you can at least ask.

Writerhall Thanks for the info and websites and mention of the book. This is for a project I'm working on. One of the best books we have on sailing and cruising on less is SENSIBLE CRUISING: The Thoreau Approach by Don Casey and Lew Hackler.

Without a complete reliance on engines... Most sailboats, at least the larger ones, have engines.

Looking for some sailing statistics

Does anyone know where I can find some statistics about sailing? I'm looking for things like numbers of pleasure registered sailboats in the U.S.and is this a past time that is growing, or decreasing during this recession. I'm not even sure if these are statistics that are available anywhere, but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Linni
