When he says avoid heavy greasy foods prior to departure, he means starting the day before.

Yes, take your dramaine when you board the boat.

Not only watch the horizon, but stay on deck. Don't go below.

Motion sickness:

1. Avoid heavy, greasy foods prior to departure.
2. If you take motion sickness meds, take them prior to departure.
3. Candied ginger chews are an excellent non-drug remedy.
4. It'll go against your instincts when you're feeling sick, but drink water.
5. Keep your eyes on the horizon.

Don't worry about maintaining humility. The sea will do that for ya.

NN,

I think I posted a thread here titled ARE YOU ON THE FENCE? It's about getting out there, and doing it. Not matter it be sailing, or hiking. It's about living life, and making choices. If not here it's at CF. You'll be crossing oceans soon if you keep this up!.......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves
