We gybe, on purpose, on a regular basis, as appropriate.

Still, sometimes things can happen when we're maybe not quite ready for them....

So we use a preventor whenever conditions warrant to help keep the boom from flying across unannounced.

We try to pay a lot of attention to the windex, wind conditions, sea state, etc...
