Personal Clothing

  • Sailing is an outdoor sport and you will be exposed to the weather and may end up in the water.
  • Launching and recovery of boats will involve wet feet.
  • A wet suit with a windproof top is ideal for dinghy sailing and is essential e.g. Capsize Drill
  • Clothing should be warm, windproof and waterproof. A spare change of clothes and a towel is also advisable.
  • Foot wear should be suitable for use in water.
  • A hat is strongly recommended, as is sun cream.
  • Glasses should be attached securely.

Buoyancy aids or a life jacket are essential when on the water and will be supplied by the club if necessary.

Health and Safety

Please note that sailing is only permitted in the presence of a safety boat. All participants must wear a lifejacket or buoyancy aid.
