English term or phrase: large sail two points...
A film about an old sailship (1789):
Sail-ho! Deck there! Large sail two points of the starboard beam!
Any suggestions for the last sentence?

German translation:Grosses Segel zwei Grad steuerbord
Explanation:
unless I'm totally mistaken, the sentence means just simply that a big piece of cloth has appeared within visual range 2 points off the starboard side of the ship.
