Tender?

What does tender mean when talking about a sailboat? Is this how quickly a boat tends to heel when the wind picks up?

tender means it heels easily, the opposite of stiff.

Thanks for the confirmation. Does this site have a "terminology" thread somewhere?

A “maven” is one who is expert, experienced, or knowledgeable about a particular subject.
