From between Piles - Wind Astern
As for getting under way when head to wind, except that the headsail is hoisted first, not the mainsail. When the yacht is clear of the piles and has sufficient headway luff up to wind and hoist the mainsail. The mainsail shouldÂ neverbe hoisted when the wind is astern.
