I went sailing with friends on two occasions. Then years later I stepped onto a windsurf board on protected waters and just sailed away to my surprise without falling into the water. For one hour I tacked and jibed and stayed dry.
I understood the force vectors in theory and that was enough! Then I spent 4years on the ocean and fell many times. Now I sail a home built dinghy on a lake with no problems.
