Senkit sem kimél a tengeribetegség, de hát ez van.

Seasickness is caused by the inner ear mechanism that tells you which way up you are being in conflict 
with what your eyes are telling you. This is why looking at the horizon usually works, as it allows your 
brain to work out what's going on from a fixed visual reference. This is one reason why anyone who feels
a bout of mal-de-mer coming on should quickly get himself or herself into the cockpit. If you have to 
stay below, then stay horizontal, in your bunk with your eyes closed so there is no conflicting visual
input. The good news is that most people recover on a voyage because the brain learns to ignore the 
unwanted signal the same way that it learns to ignore things like traffic noise that are always there. 
Take seasickness seriously, it can lead to dehydration and hypothermia and makes people careless of 
their own safety, so making them much more likely to fall over-board. If it affects the entire crew
the boat is very much in danger. If you have never been sick yourself, try to appreciate what the crew
is going through - you wouldn't wish it on your worst enemy. 
Symptoms may creep up gradually, often signified by yawning and quietness. If it does set in with a
vengeance, then be careful about making the individual stay on deck. They can become lethargic and 
unaware of what's going on, inviting a crack on the head from the boom, or even hypothermia if it's cold.
If they do go below make sure they lie down - and (obviously) try to make sure they have a large, 
convenient receptacle handy. There's nothing more likely to bring on a recurrence than an odiferous
reminder of a previous bout.
