If you’re on an unfamiliar boat, it’s your responsibility to make sure you know where it’s safe to stand, where to keep your head down, and if you are in the danger zone, make sure the helmsman is aware and satisfy yourself that there is no risk of an accidental gybe.
If you’ve got people on your boat who aren’t used to it or you, make sure they know the danger zone and stay out of it, and be doubly careful to be aware of any risk of accidental gybes.
