I have never been seasick to the point of barfing, but I've felt pretty bad a few times. On occasion I will use sturgeron. My wife always gets seasick on the first couple of days of passage offshore
, and the only thing that works for her is scopolamine patches.
The most seasick I have ever been happened a couple of months before we started our circumnavigation
. I had announced to my friends that I was sailing with my family
around the world in a few months. Then I did an overnight sail to the Bahamas
and was really seasick. But the problem wasn't the seasickness as much as the fact that I had quit my job, purchased a new boat, announced my plans to my friends, and I was as sick as a dog. I dreaded starting the circumnavigation
if it was going to be that horrible. Fortunately, that was the first and last time it happened.
