I would envisage that if one were to sail with Jimbo then you would never be short of power

With the 2 of us on board, even in a flat calm we'd be doing 20knots! I think you still have the edge...

That wasn't me in the sailing boat - when I do that, I miss!

Please don't go on about that clip.

Foolishly i've just been conned in to crewing a Yacht over to NI from Scotland in October !!!!

And I suffer sea sickness.

Also i've just watched that poor woman wretching up in a Force 6 on seaside rescue in the channel.

The yacht was getting knocked about a lot but it didn't look like a force 6.

Better start stocking up on the sea sickness tablets now. Or should I just go to plan 'B' and get blind drunk every night.

Hmm, Alcohol, motion of waves, both affect the inner ear and balance. Could be a solution, could create more of a problem!

Don't know about most people, but big seas can be quite friendy - I've found that an oily swell is probably the most pukeagenic, especially when spending time below. As for remedies - very few (if any) work; time afloat generally improves symptoms (though not always) and working through it is the hard man philosophy. I've tried travel sickness pills and they just made me feel weird while vomiting, relief bands (supposed to put pressure on an acupuncture meridien that reduces nausea) are a total waste of time, and just get vomit all over them. I even spent £100 on the electronic gadget that sends electric shocks through your wrist to interrupt the nervous system signals - what fun I had projectile vomiting at the chart table while receiving hand numbing electric shocks! Have been recommended scopolamine "Scopoderm" patches (worn behind the ear) and will have to see if they work on my next trip to France. I somehow doubt it, but the belief that they might keeps me sailing.

Plenty of good advice on this site I'm sure, but I recommend eating well (gives you something to work with) staying topside if possible and avoiding diesel fumes. Booze, unfortunately, does no good until afterwards.

Re sea sickness

might add that some have had success with this, eat plenty of dry popcorn (very little oil) helps settle the stomach, and find a place if you have room on deck for the victim to lie down, get air, have the person keep their eyes closed, for some reason lying flat on your back with eyes closed symptoms don't seem anywhere near as bad. It might at least keep someone from blowing lunch all over your deck before you get them to dry land.
