The Sailing Term for Bulging of Sail?
I would like to know if there is a word for the 'bulging' of a sail, when a boat sails close to the wind. First it will start flapping, or luffing, but then the wind blows more directly into the sail on the 'wrong'side.
I need to build up a very small terminolgy database and need translations of words. If it may help the word, is 'killen' in Dutch. And to be clear, this is definitely not the same as 'to luff'.
Thank you in advance!
