When you come for your sail...

We have a life jacket for each participant.

Please bring with you:

  • non-marking running shoes or deck shoes
  • Jacket / sweater / weather appropriate clothes (it's always cooler on the water with the wind / or if it is cloudy)
  • If you think you might want to trim sails, we recommend gardening gloves or biking gloves, it's kinder on your hands
  • Water bottle(s)
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • The chance of you going swimming is really, really small, but you might get a bit of water splashed on you depending on the wind strength and any chop / waves on the water. Be sure what you are wearing will not be damaged by water.
