It is possible to skip buying the Sail. This requires performing an unbuffered manual superswim 20 minutes into the run to save around 20 seconds. If you desire to skip the sail then you should skip all the rupee collecting suggested in the Forsaken Fortress 1 segment (the chest storage FF1 route does still saves 1 second in that case, thus skipping it or not is up to the runners preference). It is also possible to skip both the quiver and light arrows by performing Puppet Ganon Skip. All route variants are described below.
