Response: sailing to the Rules of The Road are simple when a sailboat and a motor to comply. In most situations, the sailing boat should be the support of the vessel and the engine must give way. But if a sailboat is overtaking a powerboat, the engine is the stand on vessel and the sailboat must give way because. Any boat with more maneuverability must give way to any boat with less maneuverability.
