Port means left. Starboard means right. Sheets are lines
. Mains sheet and jib
sheet. One controls the main sail, two control the jib
, only one is loaded at a time. The one trimming the jib
on the leeward side is the working sheet the one on the windward side is th lazy sheet. They lead to winches
, allways wrap the sheet around them the way they spin from the bottom up, the more wind the more wraps you want. Usually three is enough for a smaller boat. Got to go. You'll get plenty more help here. PEACE HAPPY SAILING. Get the book The Complete Sailor by David Seildman. Covers about everything.
