Best Of Heavy Weather Sailing


Some avoid heavy weather sailing.  Others seek it out.  It is full of risk, adventure, a life experience if you make it through.

As a general rule, most sailors avoid heavy weather.  They know the cost wear and tear on equipment, the placing of lives at risk, the ability to sit it out in a safe port, all are factors to be considered.

Yet mother nature is not always predictable.  Sometimes she pitches a fit when everyone thought she was only going to bless sailors with rays of sun and fair winds.


Nothing makes heavy weather sailing completely safe.  Yet, preparation is obviously a key ingredient to getting through tough times at sea.  Preparing for the worst case scenario often is what avoids falling into it.
