Is Britain a maritime nation?

An item in my paper today says that “Britain, the maritime nation, turns its back on sailing.” The evidence for this? Apparently, regular yachters have declined by 20% from 10 years ago.

Verdict? Rubbish !

The reality these days is that the number of specialisations is growing from month to month — whether in the number of professions at work or in leisure pursuits. The upper middle-class are chasing many more different sorts of animals down holes than ever before.
