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
  • Swimwear for under wet-suits and bring a towel to dry off


You will almost certainly get wet, so 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.
