You know, I would've been happy to sail with either Ted Kennedy or William F. Buckley, because on boats you tend to avoid divisive talk of politics if you know what's good for you and focus on discussions of set, drift, sail trim and the likelihood that the approaching black line of cloud to windward holds big air and buckets of wet.

Referrring to a previous thread of "U.S. presidents who sailed", Jimmy Carter was a submariner, but I don't know if he sailed.
