What annoys me most
I love sailing and i'd encourage anyone to try it.
However i'm getting increasingly annoyed with fairweather sailors people who generally have no idea about the col-regs and general seamanship this applies mostly to motorboat owners but also sailboats.
Recently a vessel (under sail) was overtaking me (under engine) when the "Skipper" called across, Cant you see i'm sailing to which i replied yes but you're the overtaking vessel so p**s off.
And this is raising a question for me you don't at the moment have to recieve any training before buying a yacht and having a jolly around your nearest water, so should this be changed,Should mandatory training courses be implemented, i personally think so as when the sun comes out so do a load of rich idiots who tend to pose a risk and danger to those who follow the rules and show at least some courtesy to fellow sailors.
If you do something right, no one will be sure you've done anything at all.
