On this years Around long island race we started in 30 knots + wind with 8+ seas about 3 hours into the event we had several issues

1.1/2 crew seasick

2.Full crew WET regardless of foul weather gear with <60 degree air temp

3.While i was wet and cold my biggest issue was the amount of sea water i was taking in.

4. 40 other boats had the same issue with only 9 able to stay in
