Exactly, you can not get a sail endorsement without direct sailing experience - which is the point I was alluding to.

The USCG requires that a Mate near coastal or a Master inland have at least 180 days of sailing experience in their life for a sailing endorsement and a Master near coastal needs at least 360 days of sailing experience to qualify for this endorsement.
