Lucky her grandfather dinna know it all yet so we have some empathy.
But does she like to sail???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

chris_gee is on a distinguished road
Bit early yet but some promising signs. She loves water, especially turning the hose on her GF. I suspect she will want to join me at times in due course if it is fun and an adventure, rather than being confined in a space with nothing to do. Neither of my kids turned into sailors, however they have good memories apparently, of holidays in which activities figured like cookouts on the beach, or rowing the dinghy, or the cat walking up the oar to get back to the boat, and going for a swim, or the dog being there, etc rather than hours sailing, and I guess winning the odd race father n son, or catching a bigger fish than dad.
I agree with Cam's approach. Adolescence can be a major pain but it passes. I don't think being forced to be an unwilling passenger works, but having fun together may.
