Sailing is pretty safe

I read a government analysis some time ago. IIRC, according to the study sailing is about as dangerous as golf. It's one of the safest sports. The study didn't distinguish different kinds of sailing, but I'm sure that the more athletic and competitive sides account for the majority of the statistics.

Of course, statistics mean one thing when you read them, and another thing entirely when you're the topic!
