As a helicopeter pilot (21 years), with commercial tickets in both fixed wing and helos, I see one major difference between flying and sailing, and I summarize it this way: What goes up must come down, but what goes down, doesn't necessarily come up again.

The draw of sailing and flying for me is control of a complex machine which becomes an extension of your body.
