Ocean Wind is a no smoking boat
Space is always limited on a sailing vessel. Please bring the minimum, in a soft bag. Large hard cases or cases with wheels are not welcome as they are impossible to stow away.
Bedding is supplied. Bring towels (one for fresh and one for salt). The evenings can be cool so bring something warm. There is no provision on board for washing, we may be able to go to shore to find a laundry, but it is not always possible.
Bring along the manuals you recieved at the when you booked this course as well as a notebook and pens. If you have your own prefered navigation tools please bring them along. We will be using electronic navigation equipment as well as traditional charts, if you have a GPS unit you can bring it and we can see how to use it in marine navigation.
There is no AC power on board. The boats electricity runs on 12 Volt batteries, like a car. If you have items that need to be charged, please bring 12 Volt chargers that fit into a cars cigarette lighter socket. We have a USB plug on board. Please note that modern electronics (Smartphone, Laptop, Tablet, Camera etc.) require a lot of power and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to charge everything all the time. Our stereo can play music from an USB port so you can plug in your MP3 player directly.
