A serious question from the Easter Bunny

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series A serious queston from the Easter Bunny

Quiz time!

First, happy Easter! When the Easter bunny came by here last night he left a note. It said:

I hear all the time about people leaving the dock, setting sail for a beam reach, sailing for an hour or two, and then turning around and sailing back on another beam reach to the dock. Is this possible or just folklore? I really need to know cause me and Mrs. Bunny want to go sailing but I don’t want to do any work. Please rush your response.

Thanks
Mr EB
ps. enjoy your chocolate easter bunny you cannibal!

So, I don’t know how to answer him, do you?

Let me know,
