Fear of Heeling

Please don''t say it is a, "girl thing." When someone asks my husband, "How did you get your wife so enthused over the boat?" His reply is, "Its her boat." Yes indeed, it was my idea to sail. At first, heeling is uncomfortable for anyone, male or female. After a while though, you will trust your boat and you will know that it is a natural occurence especially in heavier wind. It will eventually make you smile and you will enjoy heeling. Just relax and let the wind and your boat carry you.
