"We began to surf in a small way, which was exciting, and then we 'broached to,' which was a little too exciting. When a boat which is running broaches, it appears suddenly to change its mind about the direction in which it is sailing and to attempt to change its course, swing abruptly around and abeam to the wind. This action, in proper concert with a passing wave, can cause the occupants of a dinghy to become swimmers." #Broaching #Sailing #BlueWaterGreenSkipper
