Sailing Lingo Answer: Wing and Wing

Sailing-Lingo-Logo1Yesterday we asked, what does the term “wing and wing” mean?



In sailing, wing and wing is the most efficient use of the sails when sailing downwind. In sailing wing and wing, the main sail is let all the way out, and the jib is allowed to catch the wind on the other side of the ship. This allows for optimum wind on both sails, and the vessel is pushed forward.
