Why Learn To Sail, 1957 Edition

I picked up the August, 1957 Popular Boating Magazine at an Antique fair on South Beach.  From an ad by the National Sailing Association;

Skippering a sailboat builds character. It teaches responsibility, dexterity, ingenuity and good sportsmanship. It attracts companions with equally high ideals. Young sailors are rarely troublemakers.

What an argument to teach your kids sailing! Imagine what they would have had to say about video games and computers.

There is lot’s more cool stuff from the magazine I will post soon.
