Thank you! Great answers. To answer some for you.

I will be sailing on a Bennetau 40.2 with a newly formed (still forming) all women crew.

I have been sailing/racing less than a year and have never done anything like this before. I can deal with the cold and lack of sleep. I am more worried about what the conditions will be and how well, I will handle what I have never experienced before. While I have never been seasick in my life, should I take preventative measures, just in case? They say it will happen to everyone at some point.

I am geared up pretty well clothing wise but do need to invest in safety gear. With a limited budget, what would you buy first? Strobe, tether and whistle or the PFD ( boat has lots)? They both land in about the same dollar range. I pretty much know which way to go but it is always nice to get other opinions.
