Troutly...good point. In my area anyway, we have a HUGE lake. I don't quite understand why people in powerboats don't give sail boats more room. After all, 9.5 times out of 10, you're just running for the thrill anyway, so why not go 1/4 of a mile out to be sure not to disturb them? It's just a courtesy thing.
And guess what...they remember you, they remember your boat. We get a full five finger wave from our blow boat neighbors.
As a matter of fact, our offshore club and joined with the local blow boat club and started an annual Regata. It's probably more of a PR thing...but not a bad idea. We all obviously have something in common.
