Reviewing Key Terms“The joy of Sailing”
  • Starboard Tack
  • On a starboard tack: with the wind hitting the starboard (right) side of the boat
  • Port Tack
  • On a port tack: with the wind hitting the port (left) side of the boat
beam reach the joy of sailing
Beam Reach“The joy of Sailing”

On a beam reach: with the boat at about a 90° angle to the wind (generally the fastest, simplest point of sail)

Wind

close hauled the joy of sailing
Close-Hauled“The joy of Sailing”

Sailing on a close reach: sailing upwind with the wind at about a 45° angle to the boat

“Sailing on a Close Reach”

“Beating”

“working on the wind”

“sailing by the wind”

Saltyspeak: Other Ways to Say “Sailing on a Broad Reach”

“Sailing large”

“quartering wind”

downwind the joy of sailing
Downwind“The joy of Sailing”

When sailing a straight line, let sail out nearly perpendicular to the boat for maximum speed.

To jibe—turn with the wind at your back—carefully pull in sail and gently turn rudder, then slowly let sail out on opposite side.

WarningYou’ve got the wind at your back, but you can’t relax. It only takes a slight wind-direction change to send your sail swinging to the other side—possibly capsizing the boat.

Saltyspeak: Other Ways to Say “Sailing Downwind”

“Running”

“sailing before the wind”

“sailing free”

“scudding”

irons the joy of sailing
IRONS“The joy of Sailing”

In Irons: when a boat is pointed into the wind, causing the sail or sails to flap like flags and the boat to lose speed or even stop
