Peter...just to be clear.
There is wind and lots of it out here. Sailing is done year round but during the summer we can go for long periods during a day or even a couple of days with little or no wind. Sailing is very very popular around here but with the combination of traffic, big tides, lots of currents, going every which way and many islands, channels, inlets and mountains, blocking winds, funneling winds, funneling seas etc. etc. it can be problematic getting around without an efficient method of propulsion or an auxiliary method of propulsion. [edit] Kayaks are efficient and work well.
