Hunter 356 sailobat vacation based in False Creek, Vancouver!
The most important thing to bring on board is a smile and sense of humour,
The rest lsited below in a soft sided bag, no knapsack frames or hard luggage. Keep to a minumum as storage is always challenging.
Clothing: Be prepared for all conditions from a swimsuit to a suit of rain gear, pants and jacket.
Dress in layers so you can easily add or remove. Cotton clothes should be avoided when possible. It is harder to keep dry than polyesters and blends. Fleece jackets, sweater, sweatshirt, vest, and pants are all very useful. A sweat top and bottoms can double for bed attire.
One T-shirt or golf style shirt for every second day you are on board is a good rule of thumb for quantity.
Windbreaker Pants of casual blended fibre are superior to jeans.
Running style shoes, light hiking shoes for walks ashore.Sandals can be also being useful for quick runs ashore.
All foot gear used on boat must not be black soled.
Even sandals can be found with white or grey soled. Baseball style hats, sunglasses with clips and or straps to keep them from going overboard. Have a retainer for your hat and glasses!
Leave expensive jewellery at home, a timepiece of some sort is all you really need.Foul weather jacket and pants again, be prepared for all conditions.
Plan For Rain: Must have rain coat, consider rain pants. If wearing gloves, synthetic one dry faster. There is a fully enclosed cockpit, but you may wish to walk/hike at stops along the way, or go on deck and help out.
Bedding; Sleeping bag, bottom sheet and pillowcase. If it is unpractical for you to travel with your own bedding please let me know in advance and I will provide for you.
Personal Items: Personal toiletries and washcloth, Medications, Please do not forget any prescriptions, if you are worried about seasickness, which is extremely unlikely in these coastal waters, ask your pharmacist about travel sickness, behind the ear stick on patches, they work the best very slowly with no usual side effects. Towels provided.
Spray-on Sun Screen or equivalent on is the best as there is no greasy mess and it is quick to apply and re- apply. If you burn easily please have long sleeved light t-shirts packed with light pants and socks to cover up but not overheat.
Sailing Music: Bring MP3 CD's or CD’s of your favourite music. Lots on board, but everyone get to play theirs!
