We are very much looking forward to sailing with you ! !

We are often asked for some boating guidelines.
The following is a partial list of items that we have found to be
particularly successful over many of sailing.

We’ll plan to have lot’s of fun on the water ! !


"PLEASE DO"     Please Bring ( if you wish )

•  An enthusiastic attitude and look forward to having a good time ! ! !

•  Protection against the Sun:  Hat,  Sunglasses,  Sun Block,  Water

•  Layered Clothing  
                            ( temperatures may be low, medium or high all in the same day )
               – if shorts, also bring long pants   [ it can be cool out on the water !! ]
              – if T-shirt, also bring long shirt, windbreaker, sweatshirt or sweater

•  Non Marking white / rubber soled shoes with soft tread to aid in good footing

•  Foul Weather ( rain ) gear during the short, overcast season

•  Plan to arrive at Bluewater approximately 15 - 20 minutes early
             to complete any paperwork

•  For Bareboat or Skippered Charters: ( finger food with no preparation is best ! )
      – Food and Drink ( or we can supply for a fee with at least 48 hours notice )

•  For Classes: ( optional )
– Sailing Gloves & Foul Weather ( rain ) gear during the short rainy season
– Water & Lunch ( this may allow you to spend more time
                                             with the instructor at Bluewater’s facility )

"PLEASE DON’T"      Please Avoid

•  Wear black soled shoes, hiking or cowboy boots ( scuff marks )

•  Use open-toed shoes or flip flops ( unsure footing ) or high heels ( boat damage )

•  Smoke cigarettes, cigars or chew tobacco at any time on board the vessel

•  Fish, swim or SCUBA from the boat

•  For All Activities; please avoid:
       – glass bottles or glasses ( white wine, water, soft drinks & beer are ok
                  on charters but alcohol is restricted in classes )

        – red wine or dark beverages such as cranberry juice ( it will stain the boat ) 
             [ we can transfer cooler items to our boat’s refrigerator while at the dock ]

          – hard sided coolers, suitcases, etc. on board ( they damage the hull )

• For Classes: please don’t bring alcohol
                ( as it will interfere with the educational experience )



Most people are NOT susceptible to ‘mal de mer’ or seasickness.
     [ this is a very rare issue in classes but is slightly more common
              with skippered charters ]

       If you are concerned about this, the following
             are the most common precautions:

•  Let your Captain know early
             ( he or she may have additional remedies while at sea )

•  Stay Active: Drive the Boat, Talking, Having Fun

•   Ice on the back of the neck             
•  Stay on Deck in the Fresh Air   • Accupressure Wrist Bands

•   Medication: Dramamine, Bonine, Marezine,
                 Trans-Scopolomine ( prescription only )
    ( most solutions should be implemented approximately 1 hour before going to sea )

•   Ginger Products: Ale, Snaps, Candied Root, Candy

•   Good Night’s Sleep, Lack of Alcohol Consumption and Staying Active
                     are THE BEST PREVENTIONS!
