Safety equipment

All necessary safety equipment is found on board. All our professional boat operators follow strict regulations for having life jackets and enough space inside the liferaft for all passengers aboard. Additionally to this there will be distress rockets, fire extinguishers and spare parts for minor repairs as for example for the dingy.

Navigation

There will be sea maps/drafts in paper on board. You will also find cruising companion books/harbor guides for the area you will be sailing in. Most newer boats after the year 2000 also has digital chart plotters placed either inside and/or  the outside.  VHF-radio is also always on board.

If you like to APPS for smartphones we can recommend the APP Navionics for either iphone or Android.  As a harbor guide/cruising guide we can recommend the APP mysea.

Both these APPS are great tools for planning a route and finding a place to anchor up or finding marinas.
But never solely rely on electronics. Always keep a paper map in reach,and check your route according to this.

Pentry

All our boats are fully equipped for normal cooking. Pots, a pan, coffee cooker, cups, glassware, plates and cutlery. If your have any specific request or needs please feel free to contact us, and we can make an arrangement.

Dingy

Dingy or Rib (demands on the size of the boat) are always included. Outboard engine can be rented as an extra if desired, usually for a small fee.

*the content of different boats may vary slightly

First tip – Don’t pack too much!

Packing for a week or two on a boat does not need to be hard. Pack your things in a bag, make sure it’s possible to stow it away under your bed or in a closet when you’ve packed out.

Clothes and equipment for sailing

There is no need to bring life jackets. These are already on board, together with all other necessary safety equipment. The life jackets on board are often the traditional orange type, and not the practical self-inflating ones when they get in touch with water. If you have one of these bring it with you if you like. Everybody aboard should wear life jackets under sailing, especially if sailing at night.  

Skipper and co-skipper are recommended to bring water-/wind proof clothes in case the weather turns. Usually during summer this won’t be needed.

Sitting outside at night under the starry sky  with a cup of tea is something many of us appreciate. Therefor bring a warm snuggle-jacket and trousers.

Bring an outfit suitable for a night out or a nice restaurant. But keep the packing to a minimum , most people return home with plenty of unused clothes. Most people wear singlets, t-shirts, and walk around bare foot. But bring a pair of flip flops for the hot sand, and a nicer pair of shoes for the night out.  Don’t be surprised it you end up wearing flip flops most of the time.

Bedding and towels

There is no need to bring bedding or towels. This varies among our boat operators, but bedding and towels are sometimes included. If its not it doesn’t cost too much.  The kit is usually per.person and includes: two sheets, pillow case, one large and one small towel ( this might vary).

When you arrive to a marina the first thing you do is stocking up. We’ve made a list of suggestions for what you might find useful.

  • Water, water and more water. Staying hydrated in the heat can minimize the risk of getting sea sick. The water on board is not advised to drink, so buy enough water.  The water on board can be boiled and used for coffee, cooking, washing dishes and taking a shower.
  • Shop for both snacks and larger meals. It can be hard to cook food when at sea, so keep a stock of easy to prepare foods.  Fruit, noodles and pasta are all great choices  to have in reach. Other than that go around as you usual do when it comes to food, maybe even try your fishing luck.
  • Dishwashing liquid and sponge
  • Soap, shampoo and toothpaste
  • Toilet paper for use on boats. Be careful not using too much paper resulting in a clogged toilet.
  • Sun protection

Are you going to Croatia we can recommend the shopping service JamYachtSupply. They can help stock up your boat with desired foods and other items before your arrival. You can pay with a credit card and all your goods will be delivered to your boat when requested.

Other destinations; most other marinas can do your shopping for you. Please contact us and we will assist you.
