- Clothing advice:

On a sailing ship you are always dependent on the weather conditions. We therefore recommend that you dress appropriately. It is prudent to wear shoes with rubber soles in both good and bad weather. If the weather is good, remember to take suntan lotion and possibly sunglasses and/or a cap or hat. If the weather is less good it is handy to take rain clothes.
