Bring a well-fitting US Coast Guard certified Type III life jacket*, towel, change of clothes and an extra mask, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, waterproof whistle, individually packaged snacks, water in a refillable bottle, and a sack lunch. Proper closed toe footwear will be worn at all times, both on land and on the water, and a life jacket will be worn at all times when not on land. It is important that both the life jacket and shoes are comfortable and fit well.
*If a sailor cannot afford a life jacket, or their life jacket does not fit well, a loaner life jacket will be provided and the sailor will be required to use the provided life jacket. We have a limited number of loaner life jackets.
