Tell you what, I am a real non-sailor myself and the more I see of it the more I realize how complicated it really is. I have been a helo and airplane pilot for years and I do take lots for granted how easy it is (for me) since I have been doing it for over 30 years. There are so many little things involved with both sports we tend to take for granted, things we pick up that only come with time and with a experienced instructor. Flying actually is easy just takes time and patience to do it well; I imagine sailing is pretty much the same. Things can go bad to worse in a heartbeat. My hat is off to you sailors out there. One day if I am fortunate I will get to actually get to do it on my own very small day sailor.
