Before you set sail on your epic adventure, it’s important to make sure you have all the necessary items on board. Trust us, you don’t want to be stranded in the middle of the ocean without a paddle (or a life jacket, for that matter). So, let’s get started with our fun yet educational guide on all the things you should take when sailing.

First up, let’s talk about the basics. You’ll need to bring plenty of sunscreen – unless you want to return home looking like a cooked lobster. And while we’re on the topic of protection, make sure to pack some insect repellent too – no one wants to be swarmed by mosquitoes while trying to relax on the deck.

Next, let’s talk about clothing. You’ll want to bring a variety of outfits, from bathing suits to warm layers for chilly nights. And don’t forget a rain jacket – because let’s face it, rain on a boat is not exactly a walk in the park. Oh, and make sure to bring some non-slip shoes too – we don’t want anyone taking an unexpected dip in the ocean due to slippery soles.

Stock up on plenty of snacks and beverages, but be sure to keep in mind that space on a boat is limited, so don’t go too crazy. And remember to bring a bottle opener – because nothing ruins a good time like being unable to crack open a cold one.

Entertainment is a must on any sailing trip. Bring some board games or cards for those quiet evenings on the water. And if you’re feeling extra adventurous, pack a snorkeling set or a fishing rod to really make the most of your time on the boat.

Last but not least, safety is of utmost importance when sailing. Make sure to bring life jackets for everyone on board, as well as a first aid kit in case of any emergencies. And don’t forget about navigation tools – a map, compass, and GPS are all essential for safe and successful sailing.

So there you have it, sailors – our fun and informative guide to all the things you should take when sailing. Just remember to pack plenty of sunscreen, snacks, and entertainment – and don’t forget the bottle opener! Stay safe, have fun, and may the wind always be in your sails.

Also, there are things you need to watch out for too!

The Croatian coast is home to many islands, reefs, and rocks, so it’s important to have accurate nautical charts and to pay close attention to navigation aids. If you’re not familiar with the area, consider hiring a local skipper to guide you.

Weather in Croatia can be unpredictable, so make sure to check the forecast before setting sail. Strong winds and thunderstorms are common during certain seasons, so be prepared to adjust your itinerary accordingly. 

Make sure to familiarize yourself with Croatian customs and regulations before setting sail. For example, it’s illegal to anchor in certain protected areas, and you may need to obtain permits for certain activities. Croatia is, also, home to a variety of marine life, including dolphins and sea turtles. While it’s a treat to see these creatures up close, be sure to give them plenty of space and avoid disturbing their natural habitat.

It’s important to dispose of waste responsibly while sailing. Be sure to bring trash bags and dispose of any garbage onshore, or at designated collection points.

By keeping these things in mind and being prepared for any situation, you can enjoy a safe and memorable sailing experience. So hoist the sails and get ready for an unforgettable adventure!
