Here's a thing that should provoke a lot of conversation, how many people do you know that Have said I have NEVER been Sea Sick to which I ask how long have you been going to sea. I recall being sea sick three time all three when I was a Sea Cadet - the first I went to sea in the old HMS Grafton if I remember correctly a type 12 frigate with a single screw (could be wrong though - its a long time ago) I remember being sick over the side a what looked to me to be a huge man - turned out to be the Chief Buffer gave me sippers of his tot - I was on cloud nine for the rest of the voyage, but have never liked rum since. The second time was aboard TS Royalist going from the then HMS Lochinvar (about 1971 if I remember correctly) to Stavangar - was I ill - I was bringing up blood and eventually passed out from fatigue. The last time was aboard TS Aztec Lady sailing from Bermuda to Quebec in a Tall Ships Race - the first night we had 50 knots of wind across the deck and a sailing ship called the Marques sunk if a sad loss of life. All three time I remember wishing I was dead. Anyone want to tell their tales of misery ?
