Re: sail by lee and starport tack

i can only find the definition that ' Tack, Starboard or Port A boat is on the tack, starboard or port, corresponding to her windward side. ' page 7 of rrs.

Re: sail by lee and starport tack

From the racing rules:

"Tack, Starboard or Port A boat is on the tack, starboard or port,
corresponding to her windward side
."

"Leeward and Windward A boat’s leeward side is the side that is or, when
she is head to wind, was away from the wind. However, when sailing by the
lee or directly downwind, her leeward side is the side on which her mainsail
lies
. The other side is her windward side. When two boats on the same tack overlap, the one on the leeward side of the other is the leeward boat. The
other is the windward boat."

From the Colregs:

"For the purpose of this Rule the windward side shall be deemed to be the side opposite to that on which the mainsail is carried or, in the case of a square-rigged vessel, the side opposite to that on which the largest fore-and-aft sail is carried."

Re: sail by lee and starport tack

The International Regulations for the Prevention of Collision at Sea (Colregs) Rule 12: "the tack of a sailboat is the side opposite that on which the mainsail is carried (or, on a square-rigged vessel, the largest fore-and-aft sail)."
