"Newbies" can also make this mistake, not realizing they may not be able to keep pace with a boat being blown away from them.

I think there's a anecdote in Bob Bichin's book 'Lost Soul' about everyone going for a swim mid-Pacific ocean with some sail inadvertently left up, and how they were extremely lucky they didn't pay for that mistake with their lives.
