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!
