Hi Diane, I am glad you are getting into sailing and hope you will enjoy it and make it a lifestyle. I have a couple of suggestions. If you could find a catamaran for your first sail it would help. Cats do not rock and roll like most mono hulls, they are for the most part a one floor boat you do not have a steep ladder to go below, very few people get seasick on a cat. Dramamine takes some time to work. I run a tour company and have found that if you are prone to Mal de mer (sea sickness) and plan an extended trip, the best solution is to ask your doc for a prescription for Transdermal-scop patches. The go behind your ear and last up to 3 days. With time you may not need them. Have a great time.[/QUOTE]

A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked, and could only have one book, what would it be? I always say 'How to Build a Boat Stephen Wright
