sailboats that don't sail
Last Friday I sailed about 30 nm to a Marina, on Sunday I sailed another 30nm back home. The wind was light and I saw a lot other sail boats out there. Many had no sails up. I attributed that to the lack of wind. I had my main up and it definitely helped. I had the headsail out for part of the trip, but furled it when it started to flog. Yesterday I was out for a 2 hour or so day sail. This time the wind was 10-15 from the east. Again I saw 3-4 SAIL boats out without any sails up. Those boats were clearly going somewhere.
So, why are you out there without a single sail up?
A few boats would have been on a broad reach if the sails were up. Another would have been on a nice run. One boat I saw with just the main was heading mostly upwind, so I can almost understand why he didn't have the headsail up.
I don't get it.
