Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

If you had known the legalities beforehand, would you have attempted to stop and educate them?

I've learned that this is a pointless exercise. No matter how polite you are, these people will be extremely belligerent and ignore you. The only thing that stops them, is when they screw up and have an accident. If you're fortunate, no one will be hurt. If you're very fortunate, law enforcement will be near enough to apprehend them.

We're about one step away from that scene in the movie "Idiocracy" where all the rednecks were racing jetskis in the reflecting pool in front of the Washington monument.
