Inside or outside as weather and tides allow, set up and deploy serveral types of drogues, sea anchors, sail changes or sail setups to ride out heavy weather at sea. When the wind and waves become dangerous is not the time to try to figure this out. Learn how to prepare and when needed what difference each choice makes in boat speed and control. Find out which of the options work best for your preferences. We have a variety of boat and a storm gear collection to allow students to be able to make informed choices of what gear to accumulate to take when venturing to distant destinations.
