But a calm taking place when the Ramchunder was within ten days' sail of England, Dobbin became so impatient and ill-humoured as to surprise those comrades who had before admired his vivacity and good temper.
Но вот, когда до Англии оставалось еще десять дней пути, корабль попал в штиль, и Доббин стал до того нетерпелив и раздражителен, что товарищи, лишь недавно восхищавшиеся его живостью и хорошим характером, только диву давались.

Here and there they rushed with wild screams and curses, diving under the sail, crouching behind booms, huddling into corners like rabbits when the ferrets are upon them, as helpless and as hopeless.
То там, то здесь они с яростными криками и проклятиями ныряли под парус, приседали, забивались в угол, словно кролики, когда на них охотятся хорьки, - так же беспомощно и без надежды на спасение.

The name is related to the days of sail, when two ships falling in with each other at sea would back their yards and shout the news.
Это название уходит корнями в те времена, когда жители Ньюфаундленда занимались в основном мореплаванием и два корабля, встречаясь в море, останавливались, крепили реи и экипаж обменивался новостями.

Our sail was now set, and, with the still rising wind, we rushed along; the boat going with such madness through the water, that the lee oars could scarcely be worked rapidly enough to escape being torn from the row-locks.
Мы поставили парус и теперь мчались вперед, гонимые крепчающим ветром; вельбот двигался с такой бешеной скоростью, что с подветренного борта почти невозможно было работать веслами — их так и рвало из уключин.

Certainly it was nothing an intelligent man would have thought of on his own—the most rational plan was to sail around Africa as the Portuguese were doing.
Несомненно, ни один образованный человек не мог бы сам придумать такое, ведь наиболее рациональный план – это отправиться вокруг Африки, как делают португальцы.

Capt. Cyril Hendry, the troop commander who had unfolded his bridge on the LCT so that it would not act as a sail, was "terrifically busy" on the run into shore.
Капитан Сирил Хендри, командир группы (тот самый, что разложил свой мост на ДСТ, чтобы тот не действовал в качестве паруса), был «ужасно занят» во время броска на берег.
