It always made/makes me nervous to be in a boat on the hard...

This thread does not help me in my fear... scary stuff.

What is the correct method to make sure you never fall over (I'm looking for consensus here)?

That just bites. I don't know about other people, but to me a boat evokes the same kind of emotions as, well, PEOPLE - when I see one neglected, hurt, or abused, I feel sad about it.

Sailboats are people, too.

FYI, the boat that I showed fell down toward the north, i.e., was apparently blown over by a southerly gust. That seems an unusual direction, but the river is to the south, which could have provided an unobstructed fetch.

My boat happens to be pointed toward the south, with pretty high trees to not far to the west. As a result I got a lot of leaves on the boat before I covered it, but the trees probably do a good job of knocking down the westerly winds.
