Just a question for experienced sailors
Say you are out in a bay or lake several miles and the wind dies down to nearly nothing, do you motor all the way back at this point? I am wondering how much wind a sailboat actually needs to keep moving along without motoring? For example, a 25ft sailboat which I have and have not sailed it yet. Also, it seems to me that if both a mainsail and jib are up the sailboat will move along faster because two sails are up and going, am I correct?
