Motion Sickness

Life on board a sailboat can be a wonderful experience. We don't want you to ever be apprehensive. Motion sickness is a concern for many but we are fortunate to have Vancouver Island as a buffer against the Pacific’s heavy swells.

O Captain! my Captain!
our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weathered every rack,
the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear,
the people all exulting.
                      — WALT WHITMAN (1819-1892)

Tula’s medical kit contains eight different kinds of seasickness medication. We virtually never have to use this medication.
