Tennis, Track, wrestling, Alpine skiing etc are all sports where individual results are compiled in a Team total that determines the results. Singlehanded boats like lasers or windsurfers could be (and are) used in team races. If that works to build social skills, great. The sailhandling question remains. Besides this, though, not all locations are "windsurfer friendly", despite having a lot of sailing going on. In our case, it is not only because of the questionable cleanliness of the water and its chilliness much of the year. Can you tow several windsurfers at a time? Tacking up our narrow channel in the prevailing wind would provide a lone windsurfer the opportunity to cause several tens of thousands of dollars of topside damage to moored boats each time he or she set out. Other places with beach or wider expanses of water would be better suited to windsurfers. Different boats are suited to differing situations - that's why there are so many different boats.
