    If you hit left or right on the keyboard (A,D) as the sails are unfurling or furling they jump to the correct position immediately. If you do this a couple of times, you start to get strange combination so of sails, possibly a feature?

    I cant replicate it, but somehow I managed to get control of the yards - and was able to rotate them with A,D instead of steering the ship. It happened just after

    1. an underwater camera view
    2. calling up the 'leave command menu.
    3. choosing no

    The ship was full steam ahead but I could angle the sails as I liked.

    Interesting, we do have plans to be able to control the yards, I didn't think that mechanic was in the Demo though.

    Yeah, I have no idea how I did it and could not replicate. Just after it happened I sailed into a bay and couldn't get out so couldn't even enjoy it :)

    Seems to be working in the September version - Q and E to angle the yards.
