suggestion

Both of you get certified in offshore sailing school. Just don't do it together. That will give you moe confidence in yourself and in him. If he continues to be the daredevil and will not consult your need to build up slowly then he will give up his dream or you. Try to discuss this calmly but forcefully. That this is best for both of you and your dreams. Unless he is a complete ogre he will tone it down.
All the best.

In thinking about this, maybe all that is lacking is a clear division of responsibilities, you know, boundaries.

Perhaps, he could be the captain 'on deck', essentially sailing the vessel as a single-hander. And she could take charge of cabin life, you know, preparing meals, housekeeping, and other associated duties.

I hear women respond well to such an arrangement, and find it very fulfilling.

...after all, I believe she said that 'she adores him'.

Could be a good thing!

A sailor I know at a marina was just telling everyone how he doesn't feel safe sailing with his wife -- when his girlfriend is on board the boat with him. All-righty then.
