Tracker: samanthayomstudent video sailing motion

YouTube tutorial

Q: The boat is in the process of finishing a tack (a maneuver in which the boat changes the angle it faces the wind and the sailor changes side on the boat). I wanted to investigate the acceleration of the boat in the different parts of this maneuver (which is in the x-direction)

physics of sailing with a moving reference frame
this technique allows determination of motion
x1 = -0.2281*t m/s
x2 = 0.4959*t m/s

difficult to see the trend
