The sea can be rocky.
And despite the technological stabilizers and the skill of the crew of RUNNING ON WAVES — the yacht is not a cruise and therefore more sensitive to the waves.
Motion sickness is caused by repeated movements when travelling, like moving up and down in a boat.
The inner ear sends different signals to your brain and these confusing messages cause you to feel unwell.
How can we tackle it?

The sea can be rocky.
And despite the technological stabilizers and the skill of the crew of RUNNING ON WAVES — the yacht is not a cruise liner the size of a city, but a real sailing boat, and therefore more sensitive to the waves.
The experienced endure it normally. The newcomers may feel uncomfortable. It does not happen to everyone and is quite rare.
You shouldn't be disturbed about this and it certainly shouldn't be a barrier to your enjoyment of your friendship with the real sea!
If suddenly such an inconvenience does occur — here is a short note.
Let's look at the causes first
First of all, remember when in your life you felt dizzy.
The vestibular apparatus (this is a paired organ, located in the skull, behind the ear) is a gift to us, humans, from monkeys — they need it for orientation in space, when the crown of a tree limits the view. We need it just to understand where the top is and where the bottom is. (Useful information, by the way! =)
If the body is not in order, the vestibular system "fails". For example, during poisoning, stress, or illness, (or a few ) we get dizzy.
The point of seasickness is that the vestibular system "registers" changes in the position of the body in space and transmits "data" to the brain. The brain does not see changes in the surrounding stationary interior, and mistakenly believes that the body is sick or poisoned. And, naturally, it begins to "cleanse" itself!
It's not pleasant, but soon the body gets adjusted and it's over.
So how to help it?
There are special pills — but they are needed only in extreme cases.
First, it is a purely psychological phenomenon and proven sea tricks help to handle it.
Secondly, if there is such a need — any organism can quickly adapt to the rocking by itself.
Chew gum and eat sweets – Some people swear by it, others think just the repetitive motion of chewing, most effective with gum, helps relieve symptoms.
Close your eyes – Many doctors believe that seasickness is actually your brain getting confused by too many signals. Start to shut these signals down by removing smells, tastes, hearing and vision.
We know: for a real traveler there are no obstacles that can make one give up the adventure!
