LARGE, Sailing

Sailing LARGE, (aller vent largue, Fr.) is therefore advancing with a large wind, so as that the sheets are slackened and flowing, and the bowlines entirely disused This phrase is generally opposed to sailing close-hauled, or with a scant wind, in which situation the sheets and bowlines are extended as much as possible.
