If I were given a dollar every time I heard someone say, “Watching sailboat racing is like watching grass grow,” well, I’d have a much more robust bank account, or, more likely, a bigger, better raceboat. But it’s absolutely true. Sailboat racing, as practiced by the vast majority of us, is not a spectator sport; it’s a participant sport. I love pulling ropes, hiking my cheeks off, or engaging in the cerebral challenge of the average race. But I have little interest in watching other people’s races, especially from afar, and I have zero interest in watching sailboat races on the Internet, with the exception of big-time, professionally broadcast pro-sailing events like the America’s Cup. Follow the local one-design series or even the big weekend regatta on my computer? I’ll pass.
