sailors and wind farms

I'm really curious to know what sailors think of wind farms, onshore or offshore. I'm working on a report right now for the Ontario Nature Federation (ON Nature), and I'll eventually get something up on the Georgian Bay cruising website. There are quite a few projects under way around the Great Lakes in Ontario, and some (heck, most) have run into controversy, mainly from property owners who really don't like the idea of looking at them or perhaps having to listen to them. My unscientific survey to date says sailors generally like the idea of them (they employ the wind, after all), but I would welcome feedback, especially from sailors out there who have actually encountered them in their area.
thanks

It is better to be vaguely correct than specifically wrong.
