Indeed they are. And sometimes wine is exceptional in a situation where beer

and tonic, after a good day of sailing in the sun and working up a bit of a sweat getting the anchor
set and the boat put away for the evening.
If one is fortunate, they can have wine, beer, Mount Gay
& tonic all at hand and ready for what the occasion requires. This is not an unreasonable thing to plan for, and if it were only possible for everyday sailors to have the right boat for all occasions, we'd all be very happy.
