Tips For Avoiding Seasickness
Don’t drink liquor excessively the night before departing.Be careful to avoid greasy foods. The first sign of seasickness is indigestion and it often never gets past that point.Drink Coke or Pepsi. These two drinks help reduce the chances of getting sick because they contain phosphoric acid, Stay up on deck where the air is fresh and you can see the horizon. If you have a choice of berths, don’t choose one in the forward cabin. There is less pitching motion in the center of the boat and the quietest berth from the point of view of movement is often the quarter-berth, if there is one.Sleep on your back. This seems to support the stomach better from bouncing around, thoughKeep busy on deck. Have your ears cleaned before a long race or cruise. Be in good physical condition. It reduces your chances of becoming seasick and also reduces its debilitating effects on you if you do.
