If you're at sea and bad weather is going to overtake you (i.e. you can't avoid it) -- make sure you do everything you can long before it arrives.
Informative post - good one.
Just two things that come to mind:
- Try and identify where the centre of the storm is and which direction it's heading and steer a course that doesn't keep you in it's path. Read this Buys Ballot's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- If you have the time and you haven't got a bunch of sickies aboard (or maybe even if you have), get some food down everyone before the weather arrives because you never know when next conditions will be conducive to cooking. Hungry people don't function very well.
