I think it's like running aground, eventually it will happen. I had an accidental last summer. Luckily it wasn't blowing too bad and I caught it with the sheet. We were kind of doing wing on wing and the wind caught me..... Nothing busted and I was able to yell a quick "Watch out" and didn't smack any one's noggin'... Learn from it like everything else.
