Get Ready for your Journey

Are you ready for your sailing trip? Here’s our checklist to help you!

You must bring the following items:

  • Documents:
    • Passport with all the necessary visas if you need them for the journey;
    • Insurance, valid for the duration of your trip, suitable for sailing sport;
    • Money (you might need some when visiting ports);
  • Medication – if you use any, please bring double the amount you need for the duration of the journey. Inform the captain about your health condition(s) (e.g. allergies, diabetes, etc) before the start of the trip;
  • Clothing and footwear:
    • Warm clothes, including a hat (it might be cold at night watch on deck);
    • Sports footwear with hard soles and a small heel (for climbing aloft);
    • Gloves for working on the rigging.
  • Personal hygiene products, towel, swimming suit, sunglasses, sunscreen with high SPF;
    • Sleeping bag if possible (there are sleeping bags on board but using your own is always more comfortable).

Items best left at home: safety equipment (weapons, sprays), valuables, expensive jewellery, hard suitcases.
