Since sailing for most of us is a leasure pursuit lazy is allowed and a negative conotation does not apply. Many of us do it so we can be lazy. To denote that one type of sailing is more lazy than another should not be politically incorrect and can be a relatively accurate discription. To say that a nonesuch is a boat designed and rigged for lazy sailing is not inaccurate and is something held in value by the people who make an own the boats. It is also not inaccurate to point out that certain boats are designed and rigged to sail with a specific sail plan and with most sloops that includes two sails
up-there are multiple reasons not to fly two sails
many have nothing to do with the lazy word- but in our pursuit of leasure it must be in there. I for one have commited the ultimate lazy sailor sin. There is a 38 ft lobser boat with 440 horses in the bilge
moored next to my sailboat. Over the years including several 6 month live aboard experiences my wife and I have decided coastal cruiseing in a power boat
is more convienient(lazy) than sailing. When Im not in a lazy state and want to get a little exercise on the water
its the 33 ft single
hander conditions permitting all sails up. And if, as often I do, pass a boat with its main sail cover
up out for a day sail I think today that sailor is more lazy than I and tommorow it may be the other way around. If a newbee asks me why boats are being sailed with sail covers on main and roller jib-some where in the explination the reason for two sails and the reasons for less than two sais will come up- and in that mix the lazy word will probably pop up.
