Fear of Heeling
I have had this fear in the past as well, and with the understanding and assistance of folks I sail with, I have learned to get past it. Learning how adjustments on the main can ease heeling has made me far more confident about a boat heeling.
Add to that just plain spending as mich time as I can on as many different boats as I can, and I''m getting there. Did my first "almost" single-hand a few weeks ago. Captain was on board, but he just sat and watched. Did all the dock work and everything else on my own! It was just too cool!!!
