  1. Very dangerous. I sailed on a tourist yacht in Whitsundays Aust, had a very chatty scuba dive master on board. Got hit by a squall, yacht rounded into the wind, genoa started flapping, and the sheet whipped around the dive master's neck and threw him to the deck. We got it clear thank heavens, but had everyone shit scared. That chap didn't say much for the rest of the trip.
