Coastal Vs. Blue water

Gee, Graham, I haven''t found that to be true that "anything with a mast becomes a motorsailer for a large chunk of the summer when cruising the Chesapeake". Most days, if you pick your time of day, there is enough wind to cover 20 or so nautical miles in a day without even starting the engine. I have gone over a week cruising the Chesapeake in summer without even starting the engine. That is my point that you just need to pick a boat for the conditions.
