Guys, does anyone know the answer?
get what should you do if you are operating a motorboat that is being overtaken by a sailboat? from EN Bilgi.
Power-Driven Vessel Encountering Sailing Vessel
Note that the following illustrations are not drawn to scale. The boats are shown closer to each other than they should be when actually encountering another vessel on the water.Meeting Head-On: The power-driven vessel is the give-way vessel. The sailing vessel is the stand-on vessel.
Paths That Cross: The power-driven vessel is the give-way vessel. The sailing vessel is the stand-on vessel.
Overtaking: The vessel that is overtaking another vessel is the give-way vessel, regardless of whether it is a sailing vessel or a power-driven vessel. The vessel being overtaken is always the stand-on vessel.
If operating a power-driven vessel, you must always give way to a sailing vessel unless the sailing vessel is overtaking your vessel.
What should you do if you are operating a motorboat that is being overtaken by a sailboat?
Answer (1 of 34): Hold your course. The vessel overtaking is the “burdened” vessel and must keep clear of the vessel being overtaken, BUT the vessel being overtaken must not maneuver so as to impede that overtaking or in such a way that it makes keeping clear on the part of the overtaking vessel ...

Your vessel is the “stand on” vessel which means that you should continue on your present course and speed, if safe to do so. The sailboat, being the overtaking vessel, is the “burdened” vessel, meaning it has the responsibility to safely maneuver around you.
In real world scenarios involving pesky islands and other boats, it's quite common to have to alter your present course or speed. This can potentially reverse which of you is the burdened vessel (especially if you're a power vessel and the other boat is sailimg). In the situation you describe, it's often a good idea to just slow down and l

Stand on. (Keep going as you are.) This is because an overtaking vessel must keep clear, irrespective of means of propulsion.
However boaters tend to help each other out, and so each might adjust their course to help the other.
Sailing vessels these days might be under sail, or motorsailing (sail + power), or power only. In theory a sailboat assisted by power must show an inverted triangle daymark in the foretriangle, but I think I’ve only ever seen that a couple of times in decades. Some authorities insist on it though. In terms of the situation quoted it is not relevant, but it might be in oth

The craft being overtaken must “stand on” - keep her course and speed - but avoid collision if necessary
13a … any vessel overtaking any other vessel shall keep out of the way of the vessel being overtaken.
17a (i) Where one of two vessels is to keep out of the way, the other shall keep her course and speed.
(ii) The latter vessel may however take action to avoid collision by her manoeuvre alone, as soon as it becomes apparent to her that the vessel required to keep out of the way is not taking appropriate action in compliance with these Rules.

All of the answers given follow the rules of the road for maritime law. The PRACTICAL rule is: The most highly maneuverable vessel gives way to the lesser maneuverable vessel. In this case, it is right and proper for the motorboat to avoid a collision course with the sailboat. No ego, no “But the rules say…”
If a sailboat is being overtaken by an ocean-going supertanker, I guarantee you the supertanker will stay on course and ride right over the sailboat. The pilot will never feel it, the lookout will never admit to seeing it, and the sailboat captain can call on the radio all he or she wants,

Maintain your present course, until both boats can maneuver safely. The sailboat has right of way if you are on a collision course. You need to practice evasive maneuvers.

In practice you would make a sensible decision based on size and manoeuverability. The principle that power gives way to sail normally applies but there would be a reason why the vessel under power was moving relatively slowly., such as restricted depth, mechanical problems or awaiting pilotage, which would make it more appropriate for the sailboat as overtaking vessel to keep clear.
