You will need to bring:

  • Sturdy footwear: sailing boots or footwear you don’t mind getting wet. You don’t want to stub your toe.
  • Waterproof sunscreen and sunglasses floating or with a strap.
  • Hat: Baseball hat will keep the sun off your face and sun out of your eyes.
  • Water bottle: Stay hydrated! Aim for a reusable bottle to minimize plastic waste.
  • Lunch and snacks: Pack light, energy-rich foods that won’t get squished in your bag.

  • Gloves: Protect your hands from rope burns and blisters. They don’t have to be sailing gloves, any light gloves with good grip are ideal.
  • Waterproof bag: Keep your valuables safe and dry. However, any valuable items should be left at home or in the sailing club.
  • First-aid kit: Always be prepared for minor bumps and scrapes.
