Best Answer

The wind foils around the sail; this provides lift, and pulls it along. The water must pass from the front of the boat toward the rear, passing the centerboard (or keel) and then the rudder, to provide steerage.

I know that doesn't help much, but I think it probably boils down to whether or not a sailboat is capable of handling the sea conditions most likely to exist where (and when) you intend to sail.
