In Topic: The death of single number handicapping in mixed fleets?

Sadly, as the diversity of performance characteristics broadens and the number of participants decreases it appears that the sport as we know it will continue to contract neither new rating systems nor race management techniques like grouping by characteristic can do much more than delay.

Maybe shifting the focus to the pleasure and joy of sailing to attract and increase participation should be the focus.
