meters of sail held on a plane perpendicular to the boat's course, is
very likely to be unseen. There have been many local collisions with
sailboards because of this. Keep in mind that glare from the sun can
be a big factor, with or without chop.
I suggest staying WELL away from all boats, the faster they are, the
further you need to be. Also be VERY careful to avoid falling, since
it reduces or eliminates your ability to maneuver.
