Equipment Checklist

  • PFD (Lifejacket): US Coast Guard Approved, Type III. Brands like Extrasport and
    Soliquist are the most popular and comfortable. Fit is important, so please choose the appropriate
    size for THIS summer.

  • Sunscreen: Every sailor must have their own tube. The more protection the better. Ideally choose a waterproof variety that won’t hurt the eyes.

  • Hat: even better sun protection.

  • Sunglasses: important protection for the only eyes you have!

  • Water Footwear: Unfortunately, there will always be some sharp things on our beach. Cut
    feet are our #1 safety problem, so we’ll wear footwear at all times. Aquasocks or dinghy
    boots are better in the water than strap-on sandals.

  • Bailer: “Every sailor brings a bailer” which can easily be fashioned by cutting the bottom
    off of a big OJ or laundry soap jug.

  • Change of clothes: besides wearing clothes to get wet in, every sailor should have extra
    dry clothes.

  • Water: staying hydrated is important for a safe, fun, learning experience!

  • Lunch/Money: Please bring one or the other if you’ll be here over the lunch break. MBYC’s
    Snack Bar is famous for its great lunch! Unfortunately, we cannot offer refrigeration.
    Club charge accounts are accepted.

  • Good Attitude: Well rested, well fed, happy, and ready to HAVE FUN!

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the summer program and we look forward to seeing you sailing at MBYC this summer!
