I think it makes a great deal of sense to try various methods on shore first. There is no magic bullet for everyone. We have friends who use ginger with good effect, even ginger ale, but strong ginger beer or ginger tea. Obviously no side effects. We had a guest onboard in the Caribbean who put a patch behind each ear, she only has two university degrees so can't expect her to read the instructions and there were two patches in the package. She had an incredible range of the side-effects mentioned in the enclosure. I wonder how half a patch would work for those who only get a bit queasy?
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
