Re: Heeling!

I agree wholeheartedly! That, indeed, is sailing and why I love monohulls. I don't want to feel as I do on land. If I wanted flat I'd never get off land. And I don't mind getting wet, the soak from a wave crashing over the combing, spray flying up - it is a thrill. Makes me laugh with joy. But again, this is all a personal preference and choice. That god for individuality!

Getting some teak wet as you blow through a wave and get your decks and cabin wet too, makes my heart skip a beat.

Leaning over the high side and seeing ablative in the air, thatís sailing!

Re: Heeling!

I get motion sickness (car, boat, bumpy plane rides). It takes about 3 days for my 'sea legs' to kick in - and yes, once they have done, land sickness is a real thing. A small price to pay for being on the water.

Pills make me dopey and are not great when I need instant relief - apart from being on the helm, I swear by this thing The Sea Sickness Relief Band.

Have used it for 12 years- it has only ever failed me once, during the Round the Island Race in 2011 (Round the Isle of Wight) in the most appalling conditions. Even folk who took Stugeron (AKA Stagger-On) were moribund so I don't consider that a failure of the band necessarily.
