Capable of speeds up to 20 mph, it carried its ama (outrigger) to windward, and its double-ended hull sailed equally well in both directions. To come about, the wind is brought abeam, and the sheet released so the sail luffs and the boat stops. The tack of the sail is untied from the bow and walked to the other end of the boat, which becomes the new bow. At the same time, the helmsman takes his steering paddle from the stern and moves it to what will be the new stern. The sail’s tack is then retied near the new bow, sheets hauled in, and you’re off on the new tack.

Or a Dock Unlike picking up a mooring, approaching a dock under sail offers little room for error and rarely a second chance. Figure out what you are going to do before you do it. Take your time. Heave-to, or reach back and forth, before making your move. Check the wind’s direction. Does it shift inside the dock basin, and is it gusting? Check for currents, and watch for boat traffic. Lower the centreboard for stability and better steering. Get docklines out, make them fast to bow and stern cleats, and lead them so they run fair (not over or around anything).
