If safety is your concern; stay in bed.
If statistics are your concern; never go to bed (more people die in bed than anywhere else.)
Choose your dangers, arm yourself against them with education and attention, then go out and enjoy them.

When I discovered motorcycling I was scared, had frequent dreams of death on the bike (like 2/3 nights a week for the first 2 years of riding.) I just enjoyed motorcycling too much to give it up so I decided to take that energy from the dreams and start researching motorcycle safety. I read everything I could find about motorcycle safety practices from professionals like motorcycle policemen, couriers and racers. I read all the magazines (no interweb back then) and all the books I could find about motorcycling. Now, 35 years later, I can look back on thousands of fond memories of trips made, people met, roads enjoyed and an appreciation of our great country, coast to coast.
It's not a question of is it dangerous, of course it is, just like sailing. The danger decreases with knowledge and experience but it's always there.

The OP had one post, seven months ago and never came back. Set up?
They never learned to sail, but they say "It is one of my greatest fears in life to get caught in a major storm helpless at sea."
I feel so dirty for having played along.

I am sure it is potentially dangerous, so the way to deal with the danger is to accept it and manage it.
If you are not drunk and wearing a life jacket your chance of dying while boating instantly drops by 95%.
That reminds me, man overboard drill next time we sail!
