What does everyone do about the potential for lightning strikes? I read about sailing in storms, sailing around the world. But I was always told if there is a chance of lightning, you don't want to be near the water, especially with a mast sticking up saying Hey, strike here! I've been struck by lightning once in life, and really don't want that to happen again, so my question is, Is the potential for lightning strike as bad as I perceive that it is, or does everyone just ignore the possibility? What does everyone do?

Sailing a large boat on a small lake is very tacky.
