It is not a requirement, yet, to go sailing.

I agree with them, just go...one does not need mega buck boats, with all the latest electronics and such to sail.

I would think many sailing associations would not them around, as their process is contrary to the goals of these same associations.

I have not met the bumfuzzles, but would enjoy talking with them at some point. More power to them.
I am not an experienced sailor, just by the same classes as you (less the time on a sailboat), but I can not think of a more dangerous situation. I, however, would not trust an individual with no firearm experience to go hunting with me (or the same land). Just my opinion
