Sailing is in decline. The sport is dying. Just look at these numbers...
263 Toppers are sailing in the British 2007 Topper National Championships this week at East Lothian Yacht Club.
462 Optimists are sailing in the USODA 2007 New England Championships at Sail Newport.
Entry for the Laser Masters 2007 World Championships in Roses, Spain has been closed at 417 boats.
Shocking. I don't know what we are going to have to do to revive the sport.
