    Yes, that's most likely true.

    A roll and tack, free pumping, rocking, ooching, but sculling the sail and tiller will get you back to the dock without wind.
    I sail a 18' Prindle cat on the Big Muddy some day. It has a 6+ knot current in some places and a -2 in others. It is not a place for beginners and she picks the time that you should be on her waters.
    This is not a picture of the big muddy but it was a day of sailing without wind.
