Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

Motion sickness can be fatal. But the chance of being suffering from seasickness is greatly reduced when you are soloing. It is becasue you are on the helm and busy and looking out to the horizon. That is why captain seldom gets sick while the crews are probe to be sick.

If you are worry about it, preventive medicine is the best. Take to pill before heading out. If it is a long voyage, fist three day med is sufficient. Once you sea leg is developed, you won't get sick until you are back on land - landsickness (especially while in shower).

I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
