Re: Sailing 101 Quiz
Trick question. If you were reaching and the sails were properly trimmed, when you went to luff up, your sails would be under trimmed and you'd stall. Then you'd fall off and be back where you started.
On the other hand, if they were over trimmed and you headed up, the increase in apparent wind could easily overpower the boat.
