Perhaps you feel more in control on Starboard because you have the right of way in almost all passing situations. Or perhaps you own a boat that has a better balanced helm on starboard tack. Those are the only two thoughts that come to mind. Otherwise, perhaps you can get a discounted rate on group therapy sessions. 8^)

I''ve noticed that both myself and my family feel less in control of the boat when it heels over 15-20deg to port, but not so much when it''s heeling a similar amount to starboard. What''s up with that? Is there some psychological thing that goes on here? If so, why?
