What things should I pack?

The less clothes you take with you for sailing, the less chaos there is in your cabin. Keep in mind that you hardly need any clothes when sailing and there are not many places to store clothes on the boat. A suitcase takes up too much space in your cabin – take a foldable bag / duffel bag or rucksack instead.

GoreTex (if possible) jacket and trousers, fleece and thermal tights, boots and cover shoes with non-slip soles (⚠️ dark soles forbidden), gloves to protect hands during manoeuvres.

Cap / hat, swimsuit, sunscreen, sunglasses, flip-flops …

Biodegradable hygiene wipes, soap and shampoo
