- Sailing gloves or some kind of gloves that leave your finger tips free. (we also have gloves for you to borrow if you do not have your own yet)
- We supply a Lifejacket to be worn when on the docks or boat. If you have one already, great, you can bring your own.
- Bring a small duffle or bag to contain and protect all your gear. There is space in the boat cabin to store them where they will not get wet.
