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 (preferably leather) for line handling (fingertips cut off is OK).
  3. Warm clothing head to foot (Note: The ambient temperature on the water is usually lower than on land).
  4. Foul-weather gear
  5. Sunglasses
  6. Sunscreen
  7. Knife on lanyard
  8. Whistle on a lanyard
  9. Food and drink
  10. Flashlight
