Assessing Sailing Trends of the Next Generation

US Sailing’s One Design Committee has launched a survey to assess the sailing habits and demographic information for sailors primarily between 18 and 30 years old. The survey hopes to identify trends within sailing and the wider industry including use patterns, activity levels, and attitudinal responses.  

The survey will also allow US Sailing to better understand the trends of gender and racial diversity within sailing’s U30 demographic. Everyone under 30 years of age is encouraged to participate. 

The results will be presented to US Sailing’s stakeholders – Class Associations, Member Organizations, US Sailing Committee Members, and other interested marine-based organizations.

US Sailing is asking one design classes, yacht clubs, sailing programs and teams to share the survey with their 18–30-year-old participants. It takes just seven minutes to complete. Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. The survey closes September 1, 2023.
