What does my scout need to wear for sailing

During British Summer Time

  • Clothes to go sailing in / wetsuit. 
  • If you don’t have a wetsuit please bring clothes you don’t mind getting wet in and are not too heavy when wet. For example jeans are not good when wet. Please bring a few changes of clothes, we hope you won’t capsize while sailing but we can’t guarantee it
  • Water-proofs: a lightweight waterproof jacket is perfect and trousers if you have them.
  • Shoes for sailing in: either wetsuit boots, old trainers or deck shoes are fine.
  • Buoyancy Aid (if you have one), it must be a 50 newton BA with a ‘CE’ Mark. If you don’t have a buoyancy aid we will provide one.
  • A towel.
  • Sun-Screen, sunglasses and hat.
  • You might want to bring some gloves, but these are not essential.
