Had a situation with my wife on my boat. Going downwind with shifting winds, and a wife that wouldn't listen to me when I told her to sit down. It finally came to me literally yelling in front of everyone aboard "TERESA, SIT THE F*** DOWN NOW!!" followed almost immediately with an accidental gybe. She looked away from her hateful glare about the same time as the boom whipped over her head. I had to live with that one for a while but at least no one got hurt.

Short of wearing a helmet, about all that can be done is to help your crew become aware of the dangers. Some crew just need a little more help seeing the light than others.
