Sailed once with my cousin on a lake up in Alaska. My instruction was "let the sails out until they luff, then pull them in a little". It was enough to keep the boat moving.

'85, my parents got a 26' sloop and I got a job on the water as a fisheries patrol officer. I loved being on the water. Sailed with mom and dad a couple of times and we got out own trailer sailor that year with two little kids. Moved up to a 25 footer a little bit later, then a 28 footer. When the kids moved out, got a 34 footer and started planning our cruising retirement. That resulted in the 41 foot Fraser that is pretty popular up in Faster's neighborhood. Our daughter and her husband have a boat now and want to start cruising local waters with us and the grand-daughter. The trend continues.
