"Paihia Bombs" seasick capsules

With the Med to the Caribbean Milk run coming up, as well as the Pacific runs up to the Caribbean, or down to Australasia in the next couple of months a lot of sea miles will be clocked up.  Therefore chefs will be downstairs rocking and rolling in the galley to create tasty meals for the crew on passage.  For some chefs they will have guests on as well, which is extra stressful.

Even the most hardened sailor, will on occasion feel the motion of the sea particularly in the first 3 days of passage, as we all know there is no getting off!.  Marquesas to Panama passage can be 21 days plus, so one should be well prepared.

Bring on the ginger honey tea, ginger biscuits/cake, dried crackers and one thing I would recommend is "Paihia Bombs" seasick capsules.  These have already got a reputation in the superyacht industry for being excellent for motion sickness.  Made in Paihia in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, they are a special formulation pacific to this pharmacy.  Only to be purchased for your own personal use and can not be brought in bulk.  If interested it is best to contact the pharmacy yourself for details.
