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

I think in actuality you''re either born a sailor, or not. You may not realize you''re a sailor until later in life, but it was always there. For me,I realized it while playing in a creek as a kid.The first time my small toy sailboat (that I had paid the outrageous sum of $.75 for) made it all the way across the creek with only a slight puff of of wind, I was amazed by the beauty and simplicity of the craft.As the she glided across the water, I would pretend that I was aboard her voyaging to see the people on the other side. I would imagine them to be like the people I had seen in my Grandfathers- National Geographic magazines. My life has taken many turns since those days, but when I chartered my first boat in the BVI, and saw the Baths lying ahead of me, I knew I was home again.
