Definition from Nautical portal:
Zavjetrina - zavjetrena strana (broda), eng. Lee Ward, suprotno od privjetrina (Wind Ward)

Example sentence(s):
  • ako oba broda imaju vjetar s iste strane, brod koji se nalazi u privjetrini mora se ukloniti s puta brodu koji plovi u zavjetrini. - Morsko prase  
  • Otoci zavjetrine je naziv za sjeverni dio Malih Antila. Postoji i istoimena skupina Društvenih otoka u Tihom oceanu. Ovi se otoci nalaze iznad zone u kojoj pušu sjeveroistočni pasati pa se tako nalaze, na neki način, u "zavjetrini", za razliku od otoka privjetrine koji su upravo unutar zone pasata, pa se zato tako i zovu. - Wikipedia  
  • Kada jedrilica jedri kursom niz vjetar, točno niz vjetar ili ispod točno niz vjetar treba gledati na kojoj strani je glavno jedro. Strana na kojoj je glavno jedro je zavjetrinska, ona druga je privjetrinska. Uzde odgovaraju strani privjetrine. Dakle ako je jedro na lijevoj strani uzde su desne, a ako je jedro na desnoj strani uzde su lijeve. Ovo se primjenjuje samo na jedrilice koje jedre kursevima niz vjetar. - Spinnaker - Regatna pravila

Hvala, Kristina, izvrstan primjer! Ovdje ga citiram:

Dva su osnovna položaja jedrilica koje se uvijek susreću na istim
ili suprotnim uzdama. Brodovi su na istim uzdama kad im vjetar
dolazi s iste strane, pa su i jedra obaju brodova na istoj strani.
Na suprotnim su uzdama kad im vjetar dolazi sa suprotnih strana.
Kad su jedrilice na suprotnim uzdama, prednost ima ona na desnim uzdama, a to znači jedrilica kojoj vjetar dolazi s desne strane (jedra na lijevoj strani broda). Kad su jedrilice na istim uzdama, prednost ima jedrilica u zavjetrini ili brod koji je dalje od vjetra.
