Your best bet is to have a friend who owns a boat that you go sailing with.

I started with a (friend with a) 30ft catamaran which was an exciting sail on the Irish Sea, especially in winter!

Later, I upgraded to a (friend with a) 44ft yacht on a lake/reservoir (deep brown muddy puddle) in Oklahoma. Due to being used to the Irish Sea (and thus being a lot braver than the owners) I got the fastest speed they had ever recorded and scared the heck out them! I got invited to go sailing again every time they wanted to scare their friends!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
