What To Bring

Sailing Gear Checklist:

o Bathers, rash top and board shorts

o Wetsuit (if you own one)

o Sailing gloves

o Shoes to be worn on the beach and in the water

e.g. Wetsuit booties or old runners

o Waterproof/windproof jacket to wear on the water

o Sunscreen, hat and drink bottle

o Towel and a change of warm clothes to go home in

A great way to make sure you have all of this is to have a sailing bag. Dedicate a bag that you will put only your sailing gear in - that way you’ll never forget anything.
