I once hire a dinghy and went sailing on the broads. The wind died and I ended up drifting in the middle of the river in the way of a number of annoyed motor cruisers and had to get a couple of kids to tow me back.
So funny JP. And you a hard core ocean racer and Arctic explorer too! How embarrassing. As you can see my sailing dinghy had oars.
It was good preparation for how even the simplest sail can go wrong - after all, we needed a tow out of Kangerdulgssuaq Fjord after we had engine failure.
Kangerdulgssuaq! Easy for you to say.
I just cut and paste but call it "Kanger-something where Robin Knox-Johnston went climbing"
