Own equipment

A sailing outfit or normal outdoor outfit is suitable as an accessory. If the weather forecast promises rain, you should take waterproof clothes. Especially in spring, the air at sea is colder than on land. Several thin layers are better than one thick one, when there is a need for warm clothes. By dressing in layers, it is possible to adjust the clothing as needed. You should bring gloves for handling the ropes. Light-soled shoes or other non-marking shoes are best suited as shoes. In the rain, boots or other waterproof shoes. A beanie in cold weather or a cap in sunny weather are useful. The boat has life jackets for everyone.
