I spent a few years working as pro crew on various tall ships. Some of those skippers can dock those boats sans engine no sweat. Personally, I've been aboard several 120'+ schooners that we brought alongside under sail alone on occasion. By no means was it a regular feat, but it is done. Quite a few of the older boats don't have engines other than a little yawl boat anyway.
