A good rule of thumb is to wear one extra layer of clothing. For example, on top put a windbreaker over a long sleeved shirt. On the bottom, wind pants or polar fleece pants are a good choice over shorts. Polar fleece fabric dries out quickly if it gets wet. If you get too warm, you can always remove an item or two. Try not to wear jeans or cotton shirts. They’re not ideal for sailing. Both get awfully cold when they’re wet, and tend to stay cold for a good long time.
Boat shoes are available on the boat. Sperry Topsiders are an example of boat shoes. Most street shoes, including high heels, boots and tennis shoes aren't permitted on the boat. Please avoid wearing dark soled shoes as they will leave black marks on the boat. If you borrow shoes from us, we recommend that you bring your own socks. You can also go barefooted if you prefer.
