Re: Anchoring/leaving under sail

If it's a sailboat, I would think it completely appropriate.
I sail mine at every opportunity, off and on anchorage, in and out of inlets, to and from the dock/slip.
I figure it's nothing new,as sailors, by nature of being aboard sailboats have been doing so long before the engine.
The only reason to fire the diesel is,no wind or I'm in a hurry! and if you're in a hurry aboard a sailboat you may have to rethink your choices.
I'm a sailor aboard a sailboat, therefore I sail.
