It was very very calm today but I did manage to tack all the way out before the wind up and left all together. It filled back in after a while by which time I had the topsail and big jib put on and I actually had a great day out. Even if I only covered about six miles in as many hours.
I don't mind leisurely days out. As great as it is that I get to work out there all the time my passengers probably wouldn't appreciate moving at the speed of tide, with the skipper staring into the abyss and watching stuff float by.
