Uh, when you're sailing from say St. Kits all the way across the Cuba or other locales, it does take quite a while. You do start with an extra initial oomph when you leave ports, but your overall speed is dictated by the wind direction and speed.

I've never heard of this problem occurring with anything besides old DOS games.
