remote: unlikely, improbable, not likely to happen.

Raise your sail one foot and get ten knots of breeze: sometimes a small adjustment can make the different between accomplishing something or not.
example:  Zac won the Easter egg hunt, by listening to his mother’s advice.  “Focus on one egg at a time, don’t look around to see what other kids are doing.” Or, as she often said, “Raise your sail one foot and get ten knots of breeze.”

cruise: to move forward slowly but consistently so you can find what you are looking for.

example:  After school my buddy and I cruised around the mall looking for the ice cream store that just opened.
