So i am about to buy this sailboat, Talked to the guy im buying
it from and im going to have to take a ferry
to get to him. Once there im going to attempt to sail the boat back. Again this is a possiblity which im really hoping would come to fruition. The distance is around 20 miles and there is a bunch of islands on the way. I am really excited about the prospect of doing this, planning on leaving the boat in the marina and sleeping in there for the night ... then take her for a few more spins and head
home towards the night time(driving).
Was telling this plan to my significant other, she asked me what happens if there is no wind
. I mean is this possible ? I ve been reaserching sailing for years now, never thought of that as a possibility. I will be doing this on Lake Huron, the boat does not have a motor
I know this attempt is somewhat crazy, i like things to be a little crazy. I, on the other side dont want to be stranded on lake huron without wind
I guess the main question is, is it possible to not have wind on a major body of water
? (Lake Ontario
, Huron, Superior etc). Do you have to wait for the "right wind" to sail ?
