I read Glenn McCarthy’s piece in Scuttlebutt 3688 with interest. He is right as far as he goes.
This last weekend I was working a Snipe regatta as a judge (it was a qualifier for the 2013 Worlds) and we were doing Appendix P on water. For Sunday, we were short one judge and it seemed like a no-brainer to ask if one of the High School kids that sail out of our club would like to come over to the ‘Dark Side’ and see Rule 42 enforcement from a judge boat.
Of the 24 kids who were practicing at our club on Friday afternoon, not one – not a single one – was interested in working with two International Judges and a Canadian Provincial Judge.
Sounds a bit like self segregation to me
