Stugeron or sea legs for me, but not if driving, as they tend to make you drowsy. I've heard that ginger tablets are the best bet, though I've yet to try them.

Keep your stomach full.
Just look at a full bottle of juice, shake it from side to side, doesn't move around much.
Now try the same with one that's half full & see the difference.

Another alternative are accupressure bands you can get from Boots. Elastic straps with small buttons that you wear around your wrist. My wife tried them and very rarely throws anything over the side now. Before that, she would throw on the pontoon before getting aboard :yucky: :yucky: :yucky:

Well worth a try.

My suggestion is use sea legs it sorts my son out, however i also advise him to have his favourite meal before going on the boat, as it will also taste nice on the way back up.

I use Stugeron like many others, I believe that the Royal Navy use it as well (so I've been told).
I've found that every time I start to feel sick I forced some food down my neck and that seemed to do the trick, but if your out for the day make sure you take plenty of grub with you.
Also alcohol the night before should be avoided.

So far the dreaded SS hasnt got to me and the weather in the past 6 months has been a real test.But i dont drink alcohol the nite before and i always carry a packet of kwells in my box just in case although the idea is to take them before hand (i get them from sainsburys) .There has been times when others on the trip have started to feel not so good they have taken them and had a positive effect.

all the best

I'm in the unfortunate position with my work of skippers taking me out in the worst weather just to make me ill.... They all seem to think it's the first time this 'joke' has been played :rolleyes: I've yet to be sick though...

I use various methods to keep my lunch down. Concentrating on something (like soldering something in my case - tying a rig or similar would work well I would imagine) is probably the best. It's only when you think about being sick you are sick. If I really feel ill I try to get somewhere where I can't see the horizon and can stare at something vertical. If the sea is really bad I find that just the adrenaline rush from the fear is enough :)

As far as pills go - I'd get some Valium personally :crazy:

Stugeron taken at least two hours before you go, and wear Sea Bands as well. Take plenty of water to drink, and don't go mad the night before. Also, if you are tired your body is less able to deal with the motion. Tying rigs at sea is a bad idea, take plenty ready-made so you don't have to look down, instead keep looking at the horizon. If you need to change a rig, just clip a new one on. If you feel bad, just keep practicing, the more you go out the easier it will become.

If you do have a problem all the time then try and follow this :

Unless you can sleep like a log. Night before few beers to get you to sleep when your all excited!
Before bed tin of beans and 4 peices of toast!
Make sure you have a nice drive to your trip plenty of time not rushing!
Packet of ginger snap and rich tea bisc to munch on regularly!
Keep getting small quantities of food and fluid down you!
Do not sit in stuffy cabin! :uhuh:
Do not fall asleep!:uhuh:
Get a good conversation going it will take your mind off it!:secret:
Stay warm and dry as this will increase the effect of SS!

Only things I have done in the past! and have suggested to a few people who were going on some cruises. They swear by the beans on toast now!:clap3:
