Prepare for a wardrobe of simplicity – expect daily attire to revolve around shorts, tees, swimsuits, and flip-flops. But there are a few essentials you won’t want to forget:
– Footwear Fusion: Boat/Sailing shoes, non-slip shoes are a must for navigating the boat (white shoe sole = happy captain), and you’ll also want a comfy pair for onshore exploration. National Parks, town wanderings, and outdoor escapades await. Flip-Flops are always another way to get around.
– Hat Harmony: Make sure your cap fits right – the sun’s no joke out there.
– Chilly Companion: Evenings can get a bit nippy, so stash a cozy jumper to stay snug while you stargaze.
– Dress to Impress: Plan for one dressier outfit. Chances are you’ll step ashore in a coastal town at least once – a little something to feel fab in is key.
– Towels on Tour: Pack one towel for beach bliss (salty) and another for refreshing showers.
– Toiletry Tango: Your personal care essentials, of course.
– Capture the Moment: Don’t forget your camera! But, sea salt’s no friend to electronics. Shield your gadget with a sturdy case or consider an underwater version for extra fun or get yourself a water safe bag. Great for the dinghy ride ashore.
– Power Up: Chargers and adapters – you don’t want your devices left high and dry.
– Health Priorities:If you’re on prescription meds, keep them in their labeled containers for customs‘ sake. And pack extra for unforeseen delays or hiccups.
– Guiding Light: A small flashlight – trust us, navigating a pitch-black jungel or cabin for PJs at midnight is way easier with a little beam of light.
– First Aid Freeway: While boats often boast a fully loaded first aid kit (Ambra we do), having your personal stash is wise. Band-aids, antibacterial cream, aspirin, seasickness relief, and a bug spray cameo should do the trick.
– Sunshield Arsenal: Sunscreen for the day and shades plus a snug-fitting hat to keep rays at bay. No spray – it might be windy.
Ready to hit the high seas? These essentials are your compass to smooth sailing and endless memories. Just remember, less luggage means more room for adventure! Please no hard cover suitcase or golf bags – space is limited after all – soft bags are miore gently to the boat and easier to store!
