What should you do if you are operating a motorboat that is being overtaken by a sailboat?

Give the sailboat a little room for navigation. It's odd that a sailboat would overtake a powerboat, but it can happen. Whether we are piloting a power or sail craft we should always be aware of our surroundings. A good pilot will have their head on a swivel at all times and know what is approaching from behind.

You are operating a motorboat What if your motorboat is being overtaken by a sailboat What should you do?

If you are operating a motorboat and your motorboat is being overtaken by a sailboat, you should maintain present course and speed. The vessel that is overtaking another vessel is the give-way vessel, regardless of whether it is a sailing vessel or a power-driven vessel. The vessel being overtaken is always the stand-on vessel.
