What do I need to bring with me if I am a guest on the charter

The kit you bring will generally be dependent on the weather, so please be aware of the conditions and bring / wear appropriate clothing. Sailing often generates a lot of activity, so comfortable clothes and shoes are wise to wear. Also, wind chill factors get up considerably when you are sailing, so please bear in mind that several thin layers are better than one thick layer.

  • Warm clothing (multiple layers are better)
  • Soft soled non marking shoes (no heels, ideally deck shoes) or non black soled trainers
  • Wet weather gear
  • Sunglasses
  • Lip balm
  • Cap or hat
  • Sun tan cream
  • Soft bag rather than suit case for storing your kit
  • Sea sickness remedy

Please try to bring your kit in a soft bag as it helps with storage in your cabins and does not scratch varnish wood finishes.
