All that's wrong with the sport
The idea of community sailing centers seems like such a magic potion for instilling growth in the sport. Void of the exclusivity that keeps the public from enjoying the sailing facilities of private clubs, these municipal facilities seemingly provide the bridge to fulfill the interest of potential participants.
So when the city of Clearwater, FL, which operates the Clearwater Community Sailing Association, assigned a construction company to build a two-story, 3,300-square-foot addition, you think that good just got better, right? Well, a quote from the City Council justifying the expansion is less than encouraging:
“This addition is the minimum necessary to meet the space demand of our Sailing Center’s many community programs and will significantly enhance their ability to increase revenues by providing a larger rental area for weddings and corporate meetings.”
