What I Need

Yourself along with some wet weather gear that will keep you warm out on the water.

Ultimately, the following items are typically part of a dinghy sailor’s gear bag:

  • Wetsuit
  • Wetsuit booties
  • Thermals
  • Spray jacket
  • Sailing gloves
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Buoyancy aid

There is no need to buy too much gear , however we highly recommend a wetsuit for warmth. A wetsuit for sailing should not be too thick as this will restrict your movement, 3mm is plenty. Also a good idea is a pair of neoprene beach shoes to protect your feet on the launching ramp, and for warmth. These can be purchased for under $10, and wetsuits for around $100, at The Warehouse amongst other places.

The sun can be even stronger when reflected off the water, so please be careful to use sunscreen even on a cloudy day. A hat is useful for both sun protection and warmth. The club provides buoyancy aids which must be worn whenever on the water. We also provide spray jackets and helmets for raw learn to sail course members.
