Let me see if I've got this right...
If I drop my headsail.
Tie my tiller off.
I can create a "slick" on the surface of the water upwind from my boat?
If anything, I think the actor/narrator made a mistake and intended to illustrate the "slick" downwind and in the lee of the mainail.
Just my thought

A wet sheet and a flowing sea, / A wind that follows fast / And fills the white and rustling sail / And bends the gallant mast.
