Default Not fringe because difficult, IMO

Can't be that difficult, anyone I've ever taught, who was serious, got to learn. And in the old days, about nobody would "fail" to learn.

Ditto: it needs not be equipment intensive, plenty of 3-7 year-old cheap gear around that sails just fine.

However you're right: people see expensive gear out and *think* it's expensive. It's like sailing (I also own a sailboat): it's much, much cheaper than people ever think. It just that it looks difficult and expensive from afar.

Cheers for now.
