I don't know - even if sailing I'd rather flat calm than F8's and large seas! Depends how far you're going I guess - I don't mind motoring if day sailing, but don't really enjoy motoring if on a 24 hour + passage.

Given the prevailing SW along the south coast, we often end up motoring one way and sailing the other. Last time we did Poole -> Scilly we motored most of the way there into F7's on the nose, and then motored home in flat clam seas with zero wind...!

You're a heathen! Would have been more comfortable and probably quicker to have tacked your way to the Scillies!

An equal focus on drinking and sailing. Heading to Fowey 2 nights, then Newton Ferrers for one. As long as we get a few hours sail I'd rather have sun. Main focus is no kids!! Lads trip. ;-)

Im going from Plymouth towards Fowey on Friday/Sat and Sunday, so if you need a tow give me a shout

Forecast looks good for Ribbing.

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.
