Speak for yourself. I consider anything from 10 degrees C (50 degrees F) to be excellent sailing weather
. And anything over 10 knots and under 40 knots to be a perfect wind
. So I'll take your 14 degrees C (57 F) and 20 knots any day. I guess it depends on what you're used to.
On our last cruise
a few weeks ago, the temperature varied from 5 C to 12 C, and the wind
was usually 20's and 30's. We had a fantastic time and considered the weather
to have been fine. Of course, we do have central heating
