My son, who used to race with me or crew on other boats, always got sea-sick at the beginning of the season which, like sailors everywhere, the crew showed no mercy (knowing it was almost ritual), tempered with the fact that he was a hot-dog racer.

He tried everything, ginger, eating a lot, not eating, greasy food, non-greasy, beer, cola, carbonated water, accu-pressure wrist bands, saltines, bread, dramamine, get the point? Nothing worked, whatever he tried just changed the color of the technicolor yawn.

Moral: If you're gonna get sick, get sick. Stay above decks and concentrate on something other than your misery.
