I donated all of my old windsurfing gear (racing - some barely used) to the local sailing club to increase awareness. Seeing kids on high-tech (well, for the late 90s) boards/sails should help increase participation...
Jake, can you add the following classes to the regatta?
- oldest sailable yacht. Where is that egyptian cotton sail?
- (my favorite) The annual Buh Tugly memorial award (obviously, for the worst looking - but still sailing- craft).
