What to Bring
What to bring
A lot of this is basic common sense – watersports can be cold and wet, but we can assure you that it’s all worth it for the fun to be had! The following list should be used as a guide:
Your enjoyment will be enhanced if you dress to keep warm and go home in dry clothes
Waterproofs are essential as is footwear that you don't mind getting wet
Layer Up, several thin layers can be warmer than one thick, plus you can adjust to suit the local weather conditions
Bring a hat, but not gloves, they get wet and make it difficult to handle ropes and paddles
We recommend you bring a complete change of clothes and something to carry your wet kit home in
If your staying for the day you may want two sets of activity clothes or just put the wet ones back on
You will almost certainly get wet, waterproof top and bottoms are recommended on top of warm under layers. Bring a complete change of clothes and something to carry your wet kit home in. You must wear something on your feet. Trainers are ideal.
For sailing dress warmly and bring a windproof outer layer. You are less likely to get wet, but a change of clothes is still recommended.
You will almost certainly end up in the water, so we issue wet-suits for this activity. Bring swimwear and a t-shirt for under wet-suits. You must wear something on your feet. Trainers are idea.
