I'm sticking to falling off my windsurf - whenever some jet-ski tw@t comes past within a few feet, totally oblivious of the wake they are creating!
Wind is the only 'proper' propulsion method on water. Nothing beats the feeling of being propelled, (for free) without noise and pollution. Especially on a calm, warm sea, with a moderate and predictable wind. Need a holiday!
long time sailor here - wind is the way to go. Still you have to admit they are pretty cool.
I once saw a jet ski sink a very expensive power boat. He was out in the water doing donuts, loops all sorts of crazy stuff without paying attention. He smacked into the corner of the motionless power boat setting up to pull some skiers. Within 2 minutes the boat was at the bottom of the lake. Owner had the forsight to tier a life jacket to the bow rope. They managed to get it out of the water....
