Please help me understand seaworthiness so I can write about it.

I would like to write about being adrift at sea, circumnavigation of timeless oceans with a sail boat and other variations adventures involving trading fleets, escaping blockades, etc.
Unfortunately, my knowledge of ship navigation is naught. Are there recommendations on what I can read in order to better grasp the technical concepts that I can use in fictional writing? For now I'm thinking examples in fiction would be more helpful.
