Example: The Weather Spinner lands on NW. Red has a rumor in the Caracas Sea-Zone so she decides that it is worth it to sail against the wind to the SE spending 2 actions. A third action is spent attempting the rumor but it fails. Red's turn would be over, but she decides that returning to The Caribbean Sea Sea-Zone makes sense, so she spends a free action moving back NW with the wind direction.
