    Strange question.

    Just finishing serge testas book, 500 days.

    On page 154 he is sailing into a strong headwind and out of nowhere is the following sentence.

    I went to sleep and woke up when i found out that Donald Duck could write a cheque; it was midnight and time to turn again to head back to the island. A square rigger sailed past, followed by a steam ship with Donald on it.


    Is that some sort of sailing term? Or is serge sleep deprived and losing it?
