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.

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.
