Welcome to Learning to Sail

We''re new to sailing this summer and tryed to sail in some pretty heavy winds (well to me anyway) this past weekend. We experienced one of those "unexpected jibes". Pretty scary!! My question, how easy does a boat capsize? We sail a 24 ft Neptune with a 5 foot fixed keel. Also any advice on how to hoist and trim the sails in heavier winds would be greatly appreciated!
