Before ships began to be powered by steam or fuel … almost every one of them was equipped solely with sails.
Attached to the sails were ropes. The manipulation of these ropes directly affected the shape of the sail … as such, allowing the vessel to maneuver through the water.
New recruits had to learn how to tie special knots and control the ropes to move the sails and capture wind most effectively. This series of lessons was referred to as – “learning the ropes”.
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
