Yes and no. In the Columbus days, yes, because those days the earth was flat. Now, I think today's sailing is safer than ever. Not sure about Australia, I would rather sail the ocean than riding a bike across America. At least, in the ocean you will not see great white sharks and whales texting their friends.
