A few months ago I wrote a review of a book called Saving Sailing by Nick Hayes. Nick's basic premise is that sailing is in decline and he has some well-thought-out ideas to remedy that problem. I think I wrote a fair and positive review of the book.
Nick recently gave an interview to US Sailing about his experience participating in the National Sailing Program Symposium in which he is quoted as saying...
