Power vs sail: Time to deep six this old myth

“Perhaps you’ve heard of the alleged rivalry between power boaters and sailors. Power boaters hate sailors, so the thinking goes, because sailboats creep along at 5 kts, zigzag unpredictably and hog the right of way. Sailors hate power boaters because powerboats ruin the peace with their loud engines, foul the air with their exhaust and break things with their wakes.”
