Re: Misunderstood sailing terms by newbies...
I learned early on that the sheet was the line controlling the sail, so I had that down. What I didn't appreciate was when the skipper yelled "sheet!" that meant to pull that line in, typically referring to the spinnaker. The conversation went something like this:
Spinnaker apparently curling and starting to collapse.
Skipper: "Sheet... sheet... SHEEEEEEET!!!"
Me: "Yes, I have the sheet, it's right here, do you want it?"
