I bought motion eaze for my sister-in-law, who gets motion sickness in every form of transportation. She said it worked, but she hated the smell of it so much that she doesn't use it.

In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

I've had a few people on board who get seasick. I also get them to sit in the cockpit and stare at the horizon, I find that after they've been there a few days they are either over their seasickness or comatose:P

Seriously, I'm almost certain that seasickness has both a physiological and a psychological element. Anxiety certainly plays in there. Our last trip across Bass Strait was unusually benign. Yet we had a woman on board who was seasick from go to whoa. She was not pregnant (our medico asked her) and claimed never to have been seasick before. It got to the stage that we kept her horizontal down below with a bucket and the watch woke her every hour to feed her Gastrolyte (electrolyte replacer). This was the only way we could deal with quite a serious situation.

Neither we nor the unfortunate could work out why she got seasick. But gastrolyte or equivalent should be part of every on-board first aid kit.
