I believe that a sailboat has to be at a certain speed before the rudder will work. The speeds differ for each boat. If you are going too won''t work at all. Keeping the rudder straight will allow the water to flow easier over it. Thur turning it will cause drag, and help slow the boat more. Hope that helps!
