When does one become a Sailor vs. a person sailing?

Scew the nay-sayers.
A sailor is someone who''s sailing. You own a boat, that makes you a boat owner, you realy sail, that makes you a real sailor. congradulations. You''re certificate will be in the mail shortly. =)

Do the people who called into question the "realness" of your sailorship actualy sail?

On a side note, since when did a sailboat have to yield right of way to a jet ski? I dont know about maratime law where you''re from, but around here (biggest pond, Pacific Ocean) jet-skis are slightly under plastic bags on the right of way scale.

At some point I''m gonna have to try lake sailing. Sailing without waves big enough to cast wind shadows and cause accidental jibes sounds RAD! =)
