Feed your sick passenger some giner ale or other ginger product?
OK. Here is what I have for you.
We've been sailing on the Hudson now for a number of years where the current is either upriver (N) or down (S). It is of importance to get up current when you start off a day sail so you have an easy time getting back. Perhaps you should have tried to circumnavigate Faulkner Island and you would have had fair currents back to your harbor.
I am all talk and very little action so take that for what it is worth.
I hope to be looking for Sturgeon jumping on the Hudson from 8/2 - 8/4 aboard my Tartan 27'. We often hope for fair winds and following seas but this is not always the case.
