Top 5 things to take on a sailing trip

Every trip is awesome but a sailing trip! C’mon! Now that’s extra special; in order to share the special moments you had on said trip you must bring some gear along with you. We’re not only talking about a camera or sunscreen but actual gear. Below are our 5 favorite things we love taking with us on any trip but are definitely must haves for sailing trips:

 

GoPro Camera:  For capturing all those underwater moments with the angel fish, dolphins and beautiful reefs, or even just the laughter, sun and the beautiful wind blowing through each strand of your hair on deck.  GoPros are exceptionally versatile with their camera and video functions.

 

Small waterproof bag: To protect all of those cherished items that can’t get wet on your trip i.e.: cell phones, watches, books or even snacks.

 

Over the counter medications/ear plugs: Most OTC medications like Advil, Tums, Dramamine or the seasickness patch, ear plugs,etc. can be incredibly  useful to have druding the trip.  Also having swimmer’s ear (for ear infections due to water in the ear canal) on hand is necessary for any beach vacation.

 

Snorkel gear: For those times you just want to dive and swim with the fishes or when you approach an island that isn’t accessible by boat or other modes of transportation. It’s best to bring your own flippers and mask so you know that the gear will fit you properly.  All of the boats have basic snorkel gear on board, but it is hard to have the perfect fit for everyone.

 

Polarized Sunglasses: If you’re prone to headaches/eye strain/migraines, do yourself a favor and bring some decent polarized sunglasses. The glare of the sun reflecting off the water can induce migraines and be incredibly bright.
