What to bring

Some suggestions as to what to pack, and a few things to avoid if possible. Bear in mind that the weather can be very variable on the West Coast of Britain due to the Atlantic Ocean with its warm ocean current, the high latitude; 56 degrees so a north wind can be very cold even in summer and the fact that Tiree has the Meteorological sunshine record. There is a need to be flexible in the way you dress!

Things To Bring

Sleeping bag and liner
pillowcase (pillows provided).
Sailing Boots
Waterproofs (not lightweight)
Sailing Shoes or trainers
Socks for boots and shoes
Underwear (some for cold)
Trousers (try to avoid denims, synthetics are better)
Long sleeved underwear
T shirts/shorts
Shirts/blouses
Jerseys or fibre pile jackets (several layers are better than one)
Windbreaker (for dry windy conditions)
Hat (fibrepile or wool)
Sunglasses with neck cord
Sunscreen
Glasses with neckcord/contact lenses
Small day pack
Gloves
Towel
Personal toiletries
Money
Neck towel/scarf
Swimwear
Camera/film
Personal Medications
Duvet jacket/body warmer
RYA G15 or G158 (if you have one)

Day Skippers and Coastal Skippers please also remember to bring a passport picture.

We do have some waterproofs and other equipment for hire. Please let us know your size in advance. If you are sailing early or late in the season consider bringing a hot water bottle and warm clothing such as ski sallopettes, thick socks etc.

Try not to pack your gear in a suitcase or a framed backpack as they are difficult to pack aboard the boat. A zip holdall or two, max size 700 x 450mm would be better

I do have a 12v car type socket and USB ports if you want to occasionally charge a phone or camera, sorry no 240v equipment.
