Download: Packing Guide for Your Caribbean Yacht Charter
Your yacht charter is booked. Now you need to pack!
You will be surprised how little you actually need when on a yacht charter in the Caribbean. We suggest keeping it to a minimum especially given:
- Most sailing yachts, including SY Nemo, are very spacious. However, there is limited storage space, so it is advisable to bring soft canvas bags, without wheels
- Most of the time you will outside enjoying the warm winter sunshine
- The Caribbean is very relaxed and informal – no ball gowns required!
- It is pretty warm at night too, so you won’t need those woolly pyjamas 😉
Consider packing the following:
- Clothes that can be layered and that you don’t mind wearing a couple of times. Clothes made from quick-dry fabrics that include sun protection are ideal, like these Helly Hansen shirts available from Sailm8.com
- One or two outfits for going ashore in the evening
- Multiple bathing suits
- Something to protect you from the sun when you are snorkelling, kayaking and paddleboarding. An old T-shirt you don’t mind getting wet will do
- A hat that will stay on when we are heading into the wind
- Sunscreen and sunglasses
- Shoes you need for going ashore. Note that many boats have a no-shoe policy on board, including SY Nemo, unless they are new shoes with non-marking soles that have not previously been worn on land, like these from SailM8
