Are you going to an Optimist sailing event? Are you worried that you will forget something? Don't forget anything with our checklist.
For the boat:
- Toggles (or pennant holders)
We recommend that you bring a spare vang and halyard as these two tend to brake with use.
If you like doing things yourself, you can always learn how to splice vectran (which believe us is simpler than it looks). You will find a video from Rooster here showing how to splice a simple loop: https://youtu.be/HiOzEELTWp4
For the sailor:
- Winter rashvest ( the like of the Rooster Polypro)
- Cag or aquafleece.
- Booties and gloves
- Buoyancy aid
- Warm hat and sunglasses
- Dry bag for your lunch
For the parents:
- Sun hat or a warm hat depending on the weather.
- Thermos flask to keep some tea or coffee while you wait.
