Yep. Just buy a boat and go. You might make it, you might not. Even very experienced, equipped and trained sailors get lost at sea.
It's kinda like golf. Anyone can hit a ball down the course and eventually get it in the hole. Anyone can hoist a sail and catch the wind.
Doing either one very well......that takes practice....training....knowledge.
