Dear Parent or Guardian: Your cadet will be embarking on training which will take him to sea, in this case one of the Great Lakes. Lake Michigan is over 900 feet deep, and while it can become quite rough, we carefully monitor the weather and prefer to ride out bad weather in harbors. However, the motion of the vessel can occasionally cause seasickness, which is a type of inner ear disturbance very much like car or air sickness. Being seasick is no fun; it can make your cadet miserable. Since he is part of the crew which will be operating the vessel, should he become incapacitated it also makes more work for the rest of the crew. We have several options for dealing with seasickness: 1. We can, with your permission, issue the labeled standard dosage (one or two 25 mg tablets) of one of the most commonly used non-prescription over-the-counter preventatives. We will have on board Waldram2® by Walgreens, or Bonine®, or Less Drowsy Formula Dramamine®, all of which are identical as to the active ingredient, meclizine.* From past experience, once a cadet gets his sea-legs it is usually not necessary to issue it again. 2. We may have ginger candy on board. The cadets who have tried it report that it doesn’t taste very good, but it is reportedly a natural alternative to motion sickness medicine and it may prove effective if you do not wish for your son to be given meclizine. 3. Elastic bands using acupressure points on the wrist may work for some persons. These would have to be purchased prior to reporting for training, and are available at most drug stores. 4. If it is your choice, we will do nothing. We would rather avoid this option, but if there are those who do not have permission to take preventative medication, who can’t stand the candy, and who don’t have wrist bands, there isn’t much we can do except to keep the cadet on the deck in fresh air, and near the rail or a bucket. Please indicate your preference by signing below, and have your cadet bring this with him when reporting aboard: I give permission for my cadet to use the above described motion sickness medicine (meclizine) if he so requests, which will be provided as needed in accordance with the directions on the package.
