Or wave runners, whatever you want to call them... What is their fascination with small sailboats? I find them craning their necks to see my boat while they blast off. They've swiveled their heads completely over their shoulder to look at the little sailboat that is behind them. It's not a glance, but a long look as if they're completely fascinated with a little boat like it's a creature from mars. It's such a long look that I often start to think they might ought to look where they're going. Are they trying to determine where the throttle is? FWIW, they're fairly respectable where I sail. Some come close, but nobody has been a total clown...yet anyway.
