A beautiful boat!!!

When tacking a square rigger through the wind, it will sail backwards.

A tack through the wind is like doing a three point turn with a car. It is sometimes called a "box turn"

Example of a box turn in this video from 6:05 to 6:30

You will find it easier to do a wear instead (turn the bow downwind and go right around)

No Lucc, what you have drawn is a "wear" - that puts the STERN of the boat through the wind - much easier to do.

A "box turn" puts the BOW of the boat through the wind - much more tricky but will lose less ground when properly done - it looks like this:

No problems Lucc...

I see you have the sails on each mast separately controlled, that makes a box turn easier.

Here is how to make the box turn....
Like my diagram, imagine you are sailing on a port tack (wind is coming over the port rail).
All your yards will have the port side forward.
Don't point too close to the wind, get some speed up (it will not work otherwise!!)
Loosen your foresails (flying jibs etc) if you have them controlled, this will help the turn into the wind by taking pressure off the bow.
Turn the bow hard into the wind.
The foremast square sails will start to luff, then fill from the front.
The boat will be slowing down, as you now have the wind on the front of the foremast square sails.
Leave the foremost yards where they are, the wind on the front of the sail will start bringing the bow around.
Change the main and mizzen yards over so the port side of the yards on those masts is aft.
The boat will now be sailing backwards, pushed by the front square sails.
The aft square sails will be luffing, as their yards are pointing straight into the wind.
Rudder hard to starboard (while sailing backwards) to bring the stern around.
As the square sails on the foremast luff, swing the foremast yards around so the port side of the foremast yards is aft.
Centre the rudder.
The turn is nearly complete... all the square sails should now be filling from behind (abeam the starboard quarter)
The boat will stop sailing backwards and will now move forward again.
Trim the foresails (flying jibs etc) and off you go on a starboard tack (wind coming over the starboard rail)!!!

Hope that makes sense, works for me!!!

Another 32 or so, French and Spanish ships and you'll be ready for Trafalgar.

I was reading through this build and was wondering where you got your scale plans for the ship? The ship looks amazing by the way!
