Feeling Sick!!!

Hi All
Any one got a good cure for sea sickness, (apart from staying at home.)

I dont get sea sick very often, but when I do I really have to go back to shore, 10 mins after landing I'm fine???? (& I never ate a dodgy curry either). But I know that if I go out again, I will be HONKIN UP again. forced to stay on the beach & watch. (not much fun watching)

Next day , no probs at all, can stay out all day, even in the roughest sea,

WEIRD or WHAT does any one else get affected like this? or is it just me?

If your going slowly as if it were a dissplacement boat yo can get quite sick, you can buy wrist straps which apperntly help. Worth a try

Is it just when your going slowly or planning aswell?

I used to race yachts with a number of people who suffered . They all found that dried fruit or Ginger Nut biscuits helped.

And, no, I am not taking the p155. Try it.

I can vouch for the Ginger stuff, it works for several friends of mine, especially cyrstalised ginger good and strong. And if it's really bad, Stugeron is good as a last resort.

Hope it all helps
Regards

I reckon most people are sea sick because they don't eat anything - they are afraid to eat in case they are sick and then - due to an empty stomach - they ARE sick.

Obviously don't go having a big greasy fryup or anything but some sandwiches and a mars bar or something sweet may work wonders.

I find that jumping in the boat, going to cowes and having a fryup sets me up for the rest of the day

Surely if your only sick some of the time - something else must be triggering it.

Your balance is mainly controlled by fluid in the ears which are connected to sinuses etc. - maybe its as simple as being bunged up or something that is triggering your sea sickness - if that was the case it could be as simple as taking some decongestants.

I've never suffered from any kind of motion sickness. On passages I get a headache for first couple of days but then fine, however I'd never tivialise seasickness. I've been with people on board that think that dying would be a release. As for getting them to eat? Forget it. It can be very debilatating .
