That's for sure. For me "Sailing" is weekend day sails around the bay such as in my avatar picture where I'm ghosting along at a couple knots in NGBay, or Rail Down.....later when the afternoon SWesterly blasts up the bay.
When it's Vacation Time and we have a destination, usually many miles away, it's Motor Sailing if I can
and just plain Motoring if I must - Point A to Point B.....
