    Alan is joking, but he raises an issue of practical navigation that I have not seen anyone address before, one that concerns me, and that is seasickness.   I am not overly susceptible to it, but I am also not one of those blessed individuals who is immune.   I have never been sick in the bay but in the open ocean, if the wind hits 25 knots and stays that way for a while, then the swell is enough to make me queazy.  Scopalamine works well for me but even with the patch, making meals or updating the log or most anything done down below  will, under those conditions, be challenging.  I cannot imagine taking sights or doing the meticulous tabulations involved in sight reduction.  Is it hopeless for me or is there a way to cope?

    Notwithstanding my tendency toward "mal de mer", Jeremy's references to shots obtained almost makes me think of "running away to sea", advanced age aside.
