Sailing is a bit more difficult to do than powerboating, since you are much more at the mercy of the wind and currents... and have to actually plan your passage, especially if your destination lies directly upwind.
Sailing is more about the journey, where as powerboating is more about getting there. Sailing, IMHO, takes far more skill and intelligence than does powerboating...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
