Boats under sail have right of way, unless you are in a 70' trawler, or tug boat pulling a barge; something that can't maneuver.

My guess is that the guy had to wait less than 5 minutes, and got his feathers ruffled.

Look at it this way, does a tractor trailer get to blow through a stop sign if a bunch of cars are driving by? Well, it's the same way on a boat.
