You are a sailor when you sail a vessel I agree tha Jet skis are a bother and people that buy a fishing boat with twin 250''S so they can get across the lake in twenty seconds are not much better,A real sailor puts up with them ,and gives right of way because sailors know that the right of way exists and would rather give way then get run over or cause harm to someone that even though they strap on a bunch of power they are iggnorant of the rules of the road.

I think in actuality you''re either born a sailor, or not. You may not realize you''re a sailor until later in life, but it was always there. For me,I realized it while playing in a creek as a kid.The first time my small toy sailboat (that I had paid the outrageous sum of $.75 for) made it all the way across the creek with only a slight puff of of wind, I was amazed by the beauty and simplicity of the craft.As the she glided across the water, I would pretend that I was aboard her voyaging to see the people on the other side. I would imagine them to be like the people I had seen in my Grandfathers- National Geographic magazines. My life has taken many turns since those days, but when I chartered my first boat in the BVI, and saw the Baths lying ahead of me, I knew I was home again.

I agree with Stede. I too never spent any time near salt water until I was 16. The instant I was on my first sailboat, I knew it was home. I concur you are either born a sailor or not.
