There were even some sailors with Mommy Boats at the Masters Worlds in Spain. I wonder if that's the right name though? If older sailors have Mommy Boats shouldn't they be called Grandma Boats?
Anyway, the debate on this topic rages on in two threads on the Laser Forum and Sailing Anarchy. Both threads are mildly amusing if only for the insight they give into the mysterious ways in which some people's minds work and how they attempt to debate an issue like this. Where do people learn the rules of rational argument these days? Have they all been watching too much cable TV?
Can you spot which participants in these threads...
- really want to improve the sport
- are wannabe lawyers
- are still in third grade (or at least their debating and grammar skills haven't progressed since they were in third grade)
- are just trolls trying to be provocative
- are off their medications?
