Not I.

I sail in the protected waters of the Salish Sea. The only truly rough stretches are the Strait of Juan De Fuca when the winds are coming in from the Pacific at WNW or Georgia Straits when wind and tide can conspire to create some nasty conditions. That is all deep water however. I'd not like to be in the wind waves created in the Chesapeake Bay by high winds. Same holds true of some of the Great Lakes. Where I'm at, there rarely is enough fetch for winds to create much of a sea.

In reply to the original question: I don't know. And I wouldn't have worried about it if I hadn't seen your question. Then again, I went sailing on the Chesapeake today for 3 or 4 hours between Herring Bay and Tilghman Island and saw no debris. Delightful day.
