Sail tacking
Tacking is a passive sailing skill that gives the pirate the ability to improve the turning ability of their ship by reducing the turn radius. This skill unlocks at Sailing level 8.

In ship to ship combat, being able to out-maneuver an opponent may be more tactically important than having more guns. A Light Sloop with a helmsman who has maxed tacking is an EXTREMELY maneuverable ship and is the first choice of some pirates in SvS, with two mastered gunners with good cannon rams.

Increasing this skill decreases the radius even more.
