Well I've never heard of it being called "ferry gliding."
But then I have always crabbed a vessel sideways using the current to my advantage.
Me too, I've heard of 'para vaning' which may be an aero term. I last used it to tie up along a ship to refuel (near Cape York). The ship paravaned to turn around in a channel its own length. It was a great bit of seamanship and I photographed it.
I still maintain its easy without eddies or breeze - unfortunately, always have a bit of both and 17+tonnes.
Happy NY guys
