Sailboats plied the seas long before there were diesels.
Yes they did. But they did so at a much slower pace.

In the early 1800s, it took ~6 weeks to cross the atlantic. (With the occasional storm increasing that time significantly.)

In the 1900s (with boats powered by fossil fuels) that time has dropped to less than a week.
