When it is under sail, not in a narrow channel or fairway and NOT overtaking.

Please refer to Rules 12-18 in the link provided below.

The question should be "When is the sailboat the stand-on vessel...? The answer is if the sailboat has an engine and if it is in operation, the sailboat is treated as a power boat in determining stand-on status. The right-of-way would then follow the rules for power boats.
