Offshore or coastal. I'm not so curious about the people who want to hitch a ride on a day sail or participate in races on OPBs, I get that and I suggest it frequently. I'm more curious about the people who want to go distances. Sometimes it seems like they want the adventure more than to learn how to sail. Or they just want free passage. Which is fine, don't get me wrong, but if I was a skipper I'd be wary of someone focusing more on the emotions/adventure than the task at hand. If that makes any sense.
