Orders a captain gives when a ship's coming into shore

I've tried googling this but didn't really know where to start and the results weren't too good.

I need to know what a ship would do when coming into shore and the kind of orders a captain would give, like what happens with the sails and what the rest of the crew would be doing etc

The ship is a schooner manned by a crew of 20-30 with a shallow draft of about five feet and carrying little to no cargo save for ballist, if that helps. The shore in question is basically a sandy beach, fairly shallow, but there are rocks around the coastline so it wouldn't be able to go right up to the shore.

Thanks for any help people can give me. I really appreciate it!
