ROFLMAO... I was wondering who the hell Cpn Malcom is... Just FYI, Captain Malcolm Reynolds isn't me... he's the captain of space-going tramp freighter named Serenity, in the short-lived TV series Firefly and the movie Serenity. I just loved the quote he says about starships...and thought it was equally applicable, with a bit of modification, to sailboats.
Cpn Malcom makes excellent points about visibility and safe navigation. Denmark has massive wind farms offshore, and I'm not sure how they've handled this issue.
My thanks to everyone for the prompt and thoughtful replies. This is going to be a big issue along our shores, where it isn't already.

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.
