I think that's the crux. I discussed this subject with an officer of a major national sailing organization who had a serious heart condition, who loved ocean racing and who was looking forward, at that time, to an upcoming Bermuda race. He simply didn't consider his heart condition a factor in his decision to race. A couple years later I read that he had passed away, and I hoped he was at the helm of a fast boat during an ocean race when it happened. He'd have been OK with that.
