French term or phrase: choper
"En effet ces bateaux n’étant pas des voiliers faits pour le près, l’enjeu principal de ce premier bord de près qui entraîne l’ensemble des bateaux plein ouest est de **choper la bascule de vent au nord-ouest** qui accompagnera inéluctablement le passage du front dépressionnaire dans la nuit, afin de pouvoir pointer le nez de leurs étraves vers le sud-ouest à des allures de largue synonymes de surf à grande vitesse. "
