Islay being an Island, it could be useful to share tips against sea sickness .....
To do Stay outside, do not have an empty stomach
To avoid Black coffee, orange juice, beer....
Not having an empty stomach sounds strange when you tell that to other people. Several times they just didn't believe me... There is only one thing left to decide in that case, will you arrive with a full stomach at the ferry terminal or do you have a meal on board the ferry
I'm still not over the first shocking experience of Spaghetti-Cheese and Chips!!
Found another tip: The most effective remedy seems to be Bonine (or meclizine). No drowsiness, no interaction with alcohol, or other side effects in most people.
Of course the part where it says "no interaction with alcohol" should appeal to us
I have experienced, that with any kind of movement sickness, like car or plane sickness, the best thing to do is take control of the vehicle.
With driving, who is going to be carsick.... the passengers. In a plane ..... yes, again the passengers.
In the past I have done some competitive sailing.... yes the passengers again.
So go to the captain and ask if you can steer the boat.
The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time! Many scenes on Islay!
