You are having a pleasant time on the sea and the sky is as clear as the waters below, but suddenly dark clouds appear and the peaceful silence is broken by the howls of the wind. The million dollar question now is how to reach safety or even how to survive if the sea gets too unruly.

Precaution

First of all, if you are going deep into the sea, do take care to check the weather conditions from some reliable source, and if the weather is going to be difficult if possible delay the trip, otherwise be ready to bear the sea.

Ballast
In a stormy weather the ship which will get the most affected is the empty one, the logic behind that is the weight of the ship helps it to remain stable. A good ballast offers stability to the ship even if it’s empty.

Shorten sail
In case of the wind being rough it is always a good idea to shorten the sail, in order to balance the boat in squalls. Shortening the sail will mean a decrease in speed, but the sense of safety will be a huge comfort.

Avoid Crashing
If everything fails and if you do find yourself in the teeth of the storm, take care to steer away from the objects you might crash into like a coastline, rocks or even another ship.

After the storm
After the storm has passed away, get everyone in warm clothes to avoid ill health conditions, and attend to the people who are injured. Also, investigate if the boat has suffered any damage and try to fix it as best as you can.
