Sailpilot is on a distinguished road
Weather, Navigation, Etc... I have always enjoyed sailing with fellow professional pilots. We all pretty much follow the same Crew Management and reactions needed to operate the vessel (aircraft and sailboat). The training after years of flying in that enviroment become very natural and expected when followed aboard a sailboat. I am not at all saying pilots make better sailors. Just that they can draw a lot of information and knowledge from their day job.
