"Well, as the Volvo Ocean Race showed, you can make sailing a lot more fast paced"

Ocean racing sailing a Volvo? I guess I missed that episode of Top Gear

The recent Americas Cup showed some very fast sailboat racing, and a lot of hi-tech stuff.
Those guys have to be fit, especially the grinders.

Theres also the Whitbread Round the world race that attracts a lot of media coverage and money.

I don't think sail boat racing is a dying sport.

"Yes, but full contact golf would be too much like grass hockey, AKA rugby"

WTF

Grass hockey and rugby are completely different sports, and botht are played in the land I was born in
Hockey has sticks and a small round ball.
Rugby has a large oval ball, kinda lake american football, without tha armour and no forward passes.
High school hockey is played onreal grass, not astroturf.
It must be about time for rugby season, both Union and League. Go All Blacks

" For me, it falls into the same categorization as bowling, darts, and billiards."

If you don't consider darts a sport, what about archery, or the shooting competitions that involve firearms?
I consider them to be 'sports'

OTOH I consider figure skating and rhythmic gymnastics to be 'art' not 'sport'. (if the score is subjective, rather than measured with a stopwatch or a ruler then its an art.
