In this learn to sail series from NauticEd Online Sailing School, we show a simple video on how to prevent a twist traveling up the mainsheet to the boom block on a sailboat.
A high tech animation of two sailboats approaching each other on a collision course. One sailboat is on starboard, the other on port. The sailboat on starboard by convention is the stand-on boat. Meaning it holds course and speed while the sailboat on port must give way to the sailboat on starboard. A sailboat on starboard means that the wind is coming from the direction across its starboard side first. A sailboat on port means the wind is coming from the direction across from its port side. In the animation you can see the boat that changes direction is on port because the wind is pushing its sails to the starboard side of the boat. Ie sails are always on the downwind side of the sailboat. This animation is used in the NauticEd sailing school Rules of the Nautical Road FREE Sailing Course at http://www.nauticed.org/courses/view/rules-of-right-or-way
