New to racing? Here’s a short list of items you’ll need.

Safety / Mandatory :
  • Life jacket – required. Walmart options are cheapest but very uncomfortable. If budget allows, spend more and get one designed for sailing. They allow for better movement and are cooler.
  • Whistle – required needs to be attached to life jacket.
  • Protest flag – Some bigger regattas require each sailor to have one.
  • Water bottle
Highly Recommended :
  • Sun lotion
  • Hat and/or buff
  • Gloves
  • Sunglasses
  • Long shorts and rash guard (for summer time)
  • Wetsuit/Dry Suit/Spray Top/Booties (for winter time)
  • Stopwatch
  • Snacks

Feel free to ask Jeff for more details and buying recommendations.
