FAQ: Your Ultimate Sailing Essentials Guide
Welcome to our sailing community! We’re thrilled to have you on board and want to ensure you’re fully prepared for your adventure. Below, we’ve compiled a list of essential items to bring along for a fantastic sailing experience.
What Should I Bring Sailing?
- Hat: Shield yourself from the sun’s rays with a comfortable hat.
- Warm Sweater: Even on warmer days, it’s wise to have a cozy sweater on hand to stay comfortable as temperatures can drop on the water.
- Rain Gear: Be prepared for unexpected showers by bringing waterproof rain gear.
- Waterproof, Closed-Toed Shoes: Sturdy footwear is essential. Old running shoes or water shoes are perfect options to keep your feet dry and protected.
- Change of Clothes: Just in case you get wet, having a change of clothes is a smart idea.
- Water Bottle and Snacks: Staying hydrated and energized is key. Carry a water bottle and some snacks to keep you going.
- Sunscreen: Protect your skin from the sun’s rays by applying sunscreen before setting sail.
- Spray Bottle: A spray bottle can be handy for cooling off on warm days.
- Lifejacket: While NSC provides life jackets, having your own labelled lifejacket is preferable for comfort and hygiene.
