== There are too many variables to give a short answer, but generally speaking... a sailboat has the right of way over a powered recreational vessel when the sailboat is operating under the sail's power only. In other words, even if the sail is up, if the sailboat's engine is running and the propeller is engaged, it is considered a powered vessel.

the giveaway vessel is most likely the motor boat against a sailboat or if there the same type of boat then the one that is bigger has the right away and the smaller one must stop and allow it to pass

The sailboat operator is the stand-on vessel so they should keep their course and speed while the PWC is the give-away vessel so it should change course and speed.
