 It happens and it happened to me at TJIG (Dominicci Airport) in San Juan, Puerto Rico when I was a student pilot. I was coming in to land on Rwy 9 which starts at one end of the San Juan Bay. Well, there was a sail boat navigating north near the shore line that was aligned with the center line as I was on final at about 300 ft.

 I guess with a little more experience I could have done a short-field approach but all I could think was to go around. I told ATC and when asked for reason I said: ‘Uhh, there is a big boat here’. I can only imagine what they were saying afterwards. I was flying a heavy C-152. LOL.  rolleyes

I've been on the opposite side of this as the skipper of a sailing yacht near Hamilton Island Airport, Queensland Australia (HTI / YBHM).  The AIP says for this airport:  "Yacht masts may infringe Rwy 14-32 apch slope clnc. "  Typically during sailing races the finish line is not far from the Runway 14 approach and when aircraft are inbound, a call is made over marine radio to ask yachts to do their best to stay out of the way.  Hopefully we share the airspace in a friendly way; I haven't heard of any go-arounds due to yacht masts here, though I suppose it's likely to have happened at some point in the past.
