Seasickness Medication, Yes

Maybe you need to point a gun at 'em and say swallow.

I've had several less-than perfect "offshore" cruises because some of the guests didn't take their meds. Once in a Gulfstar 54, we never even got out the ICW into the Atlantic before 3 out of 6 guests started barfing. The only revenge was to keep eating really greasy fried chicken before their eyes... Much more recently, With plenty of warnings from the skipper, a few guests ignored the advise to such an extent that the aft deck became noxiously uninhabitable when taking on the Gulf of Alaska on the rear quarter in 30 knot breeze. You know the motion: a kind of rolling corkscrew with a bounce... The blessed breeze served to return their offerings, at least, and I could swear the orcas winked.

Bermuda: Thanks, I really enjoyed your musings. I also hope your Grandson is doing well. I have a 5 year old and I pray for her good health everyday.
Now, one quick anecdote about Bermuda to Annapolis. About 15 years ago, I took a course through the Maryland Sailing School aboard an IP that originated in Bermuda. There was a couple in the class that had just purchased a fancy new yacht and had matching outfits. They looked pretty slick compared to me and a father and son team. We climbed aboard threw untied the ropes and this couples literally starts getting sick. Before we left the Channel they were throwing up over the side. They did not leave their bunks until we reached Annapolis! At least there was plenty of instructor time for me and father/son team!
