Nice post! this is perfectly said:"SELF TAUGHT boating skills may come at the ultimate price of life or the loss of someone else"

RACERS have an opportunity to "get lucky" when they push too hard...They have the opportunity to really see what water does to a boat...What it has done to them. And sadly, what it has done to our friends that paid with their lives.

There is a time and a place for everything. If we can not regulate ourselves...You know who WILL.
