Hello, I'm Jess. I have never sailed before but I do plan on taking a course this summer to get my White Sail I/II certification as they call it here in Canada. My dad completed the course afew years ago and got me interested in the sport. - Would I get seasick from sailing? I have had moderate problems with motion sickness in the past, but mostly from plane rides and cruise ships. I do not want to use any medications as they seem to make me drowsy (not safe for sailing). - Here in the Pacific Northwest where I live, water temperatures are relatively constant and about 22 degrees C give or take on a warm day in July. I plan on doing my course in July. My dad told me that when he was learning to right a capsized boat, his training partner started shivering after righting the boat and getting back on. The water may seem warm, but throw in windchill and the fact that water is a good conductor of heat and wearing wet clothing and you'll see what I mean. I bought a pair of "sailing pants" from a second hand store that I thought would be good. They're not really labelled for sailing but they're tough "outdoorsy" type nylon pants that I thought would be good for sailing. Thanks.
