Re: Exercising on a boat - Look what I fell in love with!

Sea legs - a term which I suppose means getting accustomed to the constant motion of the boat and not getting sea sick or even slightly so. It takes some time for you body to make the adjustment but it seems to sick for quite some time. After 5 or 6 months not being on the boat it takes me about a half an hr of sailing motion.. to adjust and then I seem to be fine for the rest of the season. I don't normally get sea sick... but have been a few times is very nasty conditions. But that's not bad for over 30 years of sailing. Wifey on the other hand was very prone to sea sickness and it's taken her maybe 10 years to feel comfortable and not get sea sick. She now misses the boat in the winter!

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
