What to Bring for Lessons and Sailing

Here is a list of suggested items that you should bring with you to your lesson or when sailing to make your experience more enjoyable.

Life Jacket (PFD) – bring your own if you have one, otherwise SBCSA will provide one for each person. Everyone must wear a life jacket while sailing and when on the floating docks.

Sunblock – at least SPF 15, preferably the waterproof variety.

Hat and Sunglasses – to protect your eyes and skin.

Proper clothing – wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move around in and you won’t mind getting wet (from spray). A change of clothing and a towel are always a good idea, just in case. A light jacket may be appropriate if sailing in the evening.

Footwear – we require footwear to be worn on the docks. Soft-soled sneakers are recommended, but many students get by with sandals. Whatever you choose, plan on them getting wet.

Drinks – bring a bottle of water, juice, or sport drink, plastic only.

Snacks – if you can’t go without food for three hours, bring a snack for yourself and your instructor
