Re: Curiosity About These "Crew Wanted" Posts

re: seasickness, I think it's pretty easy for ANYONE to succumb given enough time and circumstances...on long passages I always recommend doing/taking something 'just in case'. Especially when shorthanded.

Given enough time, I have been 'picked up' as crew for racing, and I always recommend doing 'practice days' or 'shakedown cruises' if possible to get to know the people. Setting expectations is another key success factor.
