L/D ratios and light/heavy air cruising

Excluding most everything else, what L/D ratios are considered appropriate for sailing in light air but still capable of handling heavy air safely on long term cruising? I''m training in relatively light air for one year but will be leaving for 6mos-2yrs after that.
