Also, motoring can be an option if you're not sure about how to handle the boat in a given set of conditions, or need to make your destination by a specific time, etc....

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
