Right on!

A beginner is reaching with the sheet still hard in. The air flow is turbulent, and there is little power in the sail. When he luffs the air flow smooths out, and the heel will increase abruptly, for the pressure on the sail has risen drastically. This often happens to beginners , who are taken by surprise that they capsize, and worse of all they rarely understand why.
Nice going Sabreman.

Re: Sailing 101 Quiz

concur with Sabreman.
What kind of reach? beam reach with just main and jib? I don't believe your story.
Deep broad reach, spinny flying, strong breeze? the LAST thing you should do is head up in a puff, Knockdown City.
Without spinny? Still possible to spin her up into a knockdown, but not nearly as easy as with the kite.

BTW, if you round up too quick from a broad reach, you'll heel too much and the end of you boom can drag in the water. Now you can't ease the main any more. In fact the water "trims it in" for you. You're burnt toast..

then everyone falls to leeward and no one on the tiller, which falls to leeward too. which would be even worse if your rudder were still in the water--but it's not, not any more. Your toast is on fire.

Re: Sailing 101 Quiz

Trick question. If you were reaching and the sails were properly trimmed, when you went to luff up, your sails would be under trimmed and you'd stall. Then you'd fall off and be back where you started.

On the other hand, if they were over trimmed and you headed up, the increase in apparent wind could easily overpower the boat.
