That's great news Hawaii. It's great to see someone sticking it out. You are definitely a gnarly sailor chick. Welcome to the life!

Run aground! Not a problem! Ha! First time out we hit a buoy! A big, yellow, steel buoy the size of a VW bug! Hidden behind our genoa that we had no right flying, in a 3' shallow we had no business being in, after passing over the submerged (at high) jetty to get to said undesirable shallows. Yeah, the stories I can, and have, told. Wait 'till you drag anchor, loose the kicker, swamp your dingy, get lost in fog. The possibilities are ENDLESS! But . . . it's all fun!

vega1860 I get seasick on just about every passage. When we go ashore after a few weeks at sea, the land seems to move but I have not yet gotten actually ill from it. Just a bit dizzy.

I was once told by an old salt that the only sure cure for seasickness is a nap under an apple tree.

Welcome aboard Hawaiigirl. Don't worry about it. Take drugs.

Actually, yes. Once your system gets used to "motion" you get motion sickness again whenever that changes. "Land sickness" is common in sea sickness sufferers. The cure is the same, whatever worked for you on the boat, take it again before you make landfall.
And both ways, the more often you acclimatize your body to the changes, the faster your body gets used to it.

Some folks do not even know what questions to ask.

There are no dumb questions, other than those not asked.
