      To Vince and all;
      I had noted before that in a strong wind, the boat must be balanced not
      only by moving your weight to the windward side, but also fore-and-aft as
      well. It is possible to take some solid water over te bow if crew weight is
      not moved back. However this only seems to be an issue in strong winds with
      an unreefed sail.

      bow below the surface and ship a few gallons of water before you have
      time to scramble aft.
