Tripping is what happens when a boat gets broadsides to a wave and instead of sliding with the waves motion, the keel gets "caught" and trips the boat, causing it to capsize. It happens with some catamarans as well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
