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.

Ha ha. Yes I am well aware of that. I was referring to tim's comment that I wouldn't go to sea without my motor. As a matter of fact I did numerous times when it broke down and I was in a place where I couldn't get parts to fix it. My main point is that we can get things down by harnessing things nature gives us.
