You can also go offshore several hundred miles, or more. There you can sail close on the wind, but who wants to do that?.......i2f

Its a funny line isn't it ? After all, sailing to windward in the right conditions is without doubt one of the most enjoyable things a bloke can do in a boat.

OTOH....after a few days it does start to get a tad tiresome.......

Re: Sailing Los Angeles to vancouver

I was watching a video on Youtube a few days ago of this sailboat traveling from Canada to Mexico stuck in a gale 100 miles off the Oregon coast with 20-30 foot seas.
