"Jib" in context

Jib is an important rigging component on a sailboat. It allows the boat to be steered via thrust from the sail against the bow, or the forward part of the boat's hull. In some cases, a jib is used in tandem with a rudder, however, it is often used on its own. As the sail of a boat is pushed forward, the jib pulls the bow of the boat in the opposite direction, turning it. This allows the boat to be turned and maneuvered in different directions. Additionally, the jib can help the boat sail upwind and can also add stability.
