Sir: Olivia Timbs ('Tips for a jollier journey', 28 July) omits a most important piece of advice for avoiding sea sickness from her list.

The motions that cause sea sickness vary, depending on where you are in the ship. It pays to stay where they are smallest. The best place is on the centre line slightly behind the middle of the ship (that is, towards the stern). The motions at the bow can be twice as high, with unfortunate effects on those passengers not privy to this essential piece of information.

Yours faithfully,


Gosport, Hampshire
