Remember, it may be cooler on the water. A wet suit, if you own one, will ensure your warmth. A nylon shell jacket also works well. Please bring a set of dry clothing and shoes for comfort after sailing. Some participants prefer to wear a hockey or paddling helmet while sailing. A water bottle, snack and bagged lunch are also a good idea.
