YupWhen I first got SV Hadley, I was in constant motion. Trimming this, adjusting that, correcting the person at the helm for drifting while I adjusted the sails. (Boy that bugged me. I set the course then trimmed the sails then the dude shifted the course 5 degrees which screwed up the trim) Again this was because the feel was not right. Finally a good friend, who was manning the helm, as I was reaching again to adjust the course asked "Do you ever sit back and just enjoy the ride?"
I thought... No.
"sitting back and enjoying the ride" is not sailing. that would be....... being a passenger, which is a whole other experience. I also prefer sailing.
