Everything you need to know for a boating trip

The summer dog days call us to the water, and if you feel particularly adventurous, you might want to attempt your hand at sailing. After all, with the wind in your hair and the horizon in the distance, there are fewer experiences more freeing than cruising through the water. It is also a good and rewarding hobby for those taking the time to know the ropes correctly.

Keep it simple

Space in the rooms is restricted even on famous cruise lines. Don't put a bag on a small closet shelf that won't slide under a bunk or fit. Pack outfits that you don't mind wearing various times, and prevent significant supplies of beauty, particularly on a dive boat where nobody cares if after a day in the water you rubbed your hair dry. Think very closely about what you might need, and remove everything else from your list.

Pack accessories that are water- and wind-friendly

Pack a hat that remains on a windy day to avoid exposure to the sun. To prevent awkward falls, throw nice treaded sandals so you can easily navigate slippery decks and stairs. Flip flops are great, but if you hit the water suddenly you can say sayonara to them. It's the same for sunglasses. Pack retainers for eyewear and shoes for water or sandals around your ankles. On another practical note, there is no guarantee that the wind will not pick up as quickly as you drink that warm cup of coffee, even when the ocean looks as flat as a pancake.

Decide which boat type you want to charter

First time sailors must acknowledge the three primary experiences of charter between which they can choose. For newbies, bareboat chartering is not suggested as it offers only the bare bones for the journey. For tiny ships with a seasoned captain, a skippered charter is a better option. However, the most pleasant experience is on a crewed charter where the only thing you need to worry about on your journey is having fun while the crew is doing the job.
