I agree with you completely....When out for a daysail, or on a passage that I can make a reasonable course to my destination, I enjoy a good close haul or close reach sail. However, If I've got to make a particular current turn, or get into an inlet in daylight I'll furl the headsail and turn on the engine.

Since we sailors, have to get up early in the morning to make say.. a 40-70 mile passage...the morning breeze here on the east coast can be non-existent.....I do enjoy a good night passage though in the summer, it's cooler and the winds can be better.
