As we got closer to the marina I started feeling better and was able to assist Will with lowering the sails and docking duties. Will then left for the night, leaving us on the boat to fend for ourselves. We walked to a nearby restaurant where we had a great meal.
Both Emily and I started feeling a little queasy since we hadn't sailed for a while, and thus hadn't gotten our 'sea legs' yet. We ate some crackers and we even took some Bonine seasickness pills. We both started feeling better, but when we changed course and got a different wave pattern and boat motion, I started feeling poorly again. I was even at the helm, which usually helps with any seasickness problems, but this time nothing helped, as I had to give up the helm to Emily and made a quick dash to the leeward side of the boat to relieve my stomach of its contents. Although that helped some, I continued to feel poorly and we ended up heading back to the marina. This caused us to not be able to complete the ASA 106 requirements of doing a nighttime sail, but at that point all I wanted to do was get on land. There were even times when I thought I wouldn't want to sail the next day, but fortunately those crazy thoughts soon subsided.
