How to prevent a boat from falling on your foot

Don't try to go sailing in a force 6.  If you must, simply ensure that the ropes attached to the sails (sailors refer to these ropes as "sheets") are not held in place ("cleated") when you pick up the trolley upon which the boat is resting and turn it so that the wind is blowing across the side of the boat.

Obvious really - in hindsight :(
