THIS IS A WAITING LIST: FINAL SELECTION OF CREW ON FRIDAY

I need to know who has sailing experience. See sign up question.

• Capacity 6 people (30 foot sailboat with cabin)

• If RSVP is full, don't be shy about the waiting list. I try to mix skilled boaters with newbies.

• No fee, but plan for food (bring lunch, water).

• No alcohol while under way.

• Don't forget sun block (http://imgur.com/gallery/ZCrrGuJ), sunglasses, and a camera. We will need two bags of ice.

• If you get might seasick, take precautions beforehand. Consider remedies such as a wrist band (http://www.walgreens.com/q/motion-sickness-wrist-bands), or talk to your doctor about Transderm Scop, meclizine or Dramamine (https://www.drugs.com/condition/motion-sickness.html). Bear in mind that you typically are directed to take these medications several hours in advance.

• Even if the forecast is clear, it may rain; bring an anorak or windbreaker.

• Again, bring water, also I have instant Gatorade.

• Parking is $5 if you are a guest of mine (you are), $8 if you are not. Be sure to tell the guard.

• Life jackets are essential. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQDt1Xk74Mk) Yes I have life vests.

This is a sail, and sailing is not a passive thing, at least not while underway. You need to stay alert as to moving lines (ropes), and various parts of the boat such as the boom.
