He heads back up onto the deck.
He jumps back down onto the container and takes a metal loop
that is sticking out of the yellow sack and ties the long

He now stops and looks around and tries to calmly analyze the
situation before he takes another move. He looks up at the
sails and the wind direction indicator at the top of the
He scans the horizon.
Finally he shakes the contents out of the yellow bag, it

help stabilize a boat by dragging it under the water. The

The water catches in the chute and starts pulling the rope

controlling the sails and begins to turn the boat around back
towards the container... what is he doing?
