These are the points of sail:
1. Irons: When your in irons, your not moving. The bow is straight into the wind. You have to figure out a way to get out of irons, or else you won't move.
2. Close Hauled: Close hauled is the closest you can go to the wind without getting in irons. It isn't too fast, but it can get you somewhere.
3. Close Reach: A close reach is slightly more downwind than close hauled. It goes slightly faster than close hauled.
4. Beam Reach: A beam reach is the fastest point of sail there is. It is also the most fun because you heel the most(Heeling is when the boat is tilted to one side).
5. Broad Reach: A broad reach is slightly more upwind than a run. Broad reaches heel less than a beam reach, and go slightly slower.
6. Run: If you're on a run, you could be in a dangerous spot if you're not careful and not aware. If you are'nt careful, you could accidentally jibe, and someone could fall overboard if you'r not aware.
