Sailing Essentials

Don’t leave the dock without these items! They make sailing safer for you and your crewmates. As a carrier, use a soft duffel bag for easy stowing without metal buckles that can scratch woodwork.
  1. Non-skid deck shoes (or sea boots) with non-marking soles.
  2. Heavy-duty gloves for line handling. 
  3. Warm clothing head to foot.  Layers ending in wind and water proof outer gear works best.  
  4. Foul-weather gear.
  5. Sunglasses with strap or crokie. 
  6. Hat with chin strap or clip. 
  7. Sunscreen.
  8. Food and drink.
  9. Great attitude!
