Good question, I would agree mostly with the OP.

I've often heard people say here that "real sailors don't sail to windward" or something like that? Always confused me?

We enjoy a sail close hauled sail for many reasons already stated, that said heeling 15+ for hours can get tiresome, especially for us, the kids seem to do fine LOL. If we have a destination we must make the engine gets fired up though ;-(
