Re: Is sailboat ownership dying ( or at least sick)
I think that digital media about sailing will help. Maybe a year and a half ago I saw the documentary Maiden Trip on Netflix. I thought "Holy ****, I want to do that." A while later I was on meetup.com and my local yacht club (which I didn't know existed) offered a beginner's course for $75. I jumped on it. I found sv Delos and La Vagabond, etc along the way. A year later I'm just about to embark on my first crew position. Sailing for a month and getting some blue water experience.
Note: I'm a 33yo old male, never married, no wife, kids, or debt. That makes it easier but we all have to live with our choices.
