Cruise vacations are a great way to get away from reality and to experience something that you wouldn’t experience on a regular land vacation. A common question that is asked when planning a cruise is "will I get seasick"? Many people can go a whole trip without experiencing motion or "sea sickness". However, about 3 percent of people who take cruises do experience this and are crippled by it for the entire trip.
Most ships today have underwater stabilizers on each side of the hull which counteracts against the rolling motion that causes sea sickness.

Have you ever been caught out in gusty weather, unable to reef right away because you are short handed? Sure, you should have reefed earlier, but we all push the envelope more than we should once in a while. Now what, skipper? These three techniques will show you how to sail a boat in gusty weather under control until you get around to sail reefing.
Put the triple power of push, pop, and pinch into play when sailing by yourself or shorthanded. These methods concentrate on the mainsail. You can use similar actions with the headsail, but you want to make the main less powerful for the most effective temporary fix.
