After that, looks like you'll get NW and W winds for a bit.
If you can hold a good course through your shifts and remain healthy...you will be contributing your weight in gold!
Actually I worry about that too because the westerly wind. I have suggested to Captain to skip going through Elizabeth Island and Marthas Vineyard and just head south or southwest. But it is the captain's decision, I will be happy either way.
I have never gotten motion sickness. But this time, I don't want to take chances. I will apply a scopolamine patch tomorrow morning for a try-out. Hopeful I don't need suppository
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
