Not with the wind in that direction on this boat (an Ovni). It's okay, but not the best windward performer, and it motors so well it's a darn sight easier to motor directly to windward! Maybe I'm just a lazy sailor as well...
Having motored Poole to Salcombe this July, we did then sail the entire passage down to Vannes and the Golfe du Morbihan, which was very good.
