It's not my cup of tea.

This is a  British expression which means 'It's not something I'm interested in'.

Sailing is not my cup of tea as I'm prone to seasickness.

We don't often use this expression in the positive (sailing is my cup of tea). So, let's see if you can find a similar expression that we can use in the positive as well:

Sailing is right ................ (preposition) my .................. (noun) as I love the sea.

 

ANSWER: right up my street / alley

Hello Minoo and you all,

I found this one that is mainly British: "Sailing is right up my street as I love the sea".

There's also a  American variant: "up my alley".

Phil has given us the right answer: The common expressions in English are right up my street / right up my alley.

However, as I am impressed, Hari and Sergey, with your creativity, and as you are always active on the forums, you'll get some free credits too!
