Ah I see now. Not sure if walking early equates to good sense of balance. But I have to agree that a good sense of balance does seem to make people more prone. More sensitive inner ear. So perhaps I should just ask my friends if they are clumsy

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hmm,,,interesting. I am without doubt one of the clumsiest duffers I've ever met and I have a rotten sense of balance. Could never ride a surfboard or a skate, hopeless on a windsurfer and tend to end up in hospital when I get on any two wheeled machine.

Never been legitimately seasick.

Oh, and in case you are wondering I'm crap in a dinghy and would not make any claims for my overall sailing ability. It does not come naturally to me, I need to work at it all the time.

One of my best mates is the best windsurfer, roller blader , sailor in general that I know. He has superb balance. He cannot go out in anything approaching heavy weather. Crossing an ocean would be his worst nightmare. Technicolour nighmare at that . Go figure.

Thanks...you be my case in point! I walked early, was an avid ice skater, water skier, and snow skier. I get big time sea sick when conditions are right.

Ms Wombat reckons that watching me lurch around on deck is positively disconcerting yet I have never fallen overboard and it is a very rare occasion that I feel unsure of myself onboard.

Maybe just take out white males between 12 and 53 years old.

Since you know we can't dance worth a crap..........

Ginger tablets onboard work fast (within 40 minutes) so keep them around. I've never encountered a person who is allergic to them and everyone (about 9 people that I can think of just on MY boat alone) says they work 100%.

They can even relieve active sea sickness if you have the person up in the cockpit where they can see the horizon and get fresh air (so the pills stay in).
