Portuguese term or phrase: irá atuar como rebique
Hi everyone! I'm translating a summary of events for a TV show on jangadas in Ceará. I'm not sure what term this refers to in English. Thanks for your help!

- No dia seguinte, ao amanhecer, ela puxa a âncora. A torcida é grande para o vento favorecer o retorno seguro da embarcação e qualquer contratempo pode ocasionar o rompimento da vela, fazendo com que ela precise improvisar amarrações e costuras no tecido com uma agulha e linha que os pescadores costumam levar apara emergências. Neste retorno, ela ***irá atuar como rebique***, hasteando a vela e molhando-a durante o percurso.

Explanation:
Rebique é o pescador que está colocado na parte mais anterior da jangada, e o bico de proa aquela aquele que fica atrás do rebique, na bolina; molha a vela quando a jangada vem do mar para a terra.

The crew of small ‘jangadas’ is made up of a master and assistant. On the larger ones, the crew can number up to four men: the master, who commands the vessel; the bowman, who maintains the rope of the ‘jangada’ and trims the sail when going from land to the high sea; the ‘bico-de-proa’ (beak-of-the-prow), who trims the sail when the ‘jangada’ comes from the sea to land; and the ‘contra-bico’ (COUNTER-BEAK) (‘rebique’ in Ceará), who is the fisherman who stays at the extreme rear of the ‘jangada’ during fishing trips.
