Layer Up Your Clothes For Sailing Always bring a t-shirt, a long-sleeved top (preferably a thermal vest), a fleece top and then your raincoat that’s windproof as your final layer. This fleece top is the perfect sort of layer for sailing as it’s light and breathable, but will also keep you super warm.

How should I dress for a sailing trip?
What to Wear Sailing in Cold Weather
- Pullovers. A lightweight hoodie is great for keeping warm on a chilly day.
- Wool Base Layer. Wool base layers or leggings are a must-have for cooler climates on a boat.
- Beanie. If it’s a chilly, windy day on the water, you’ll want a beanie to keep your noggin warm.
- Wool Socks.
What clothes do you need for sailing?
Professional sailing clothes
- sailing gloves.
- boat shoes or sailing boots.
- water shoes.
- polaroid sunglasses with croakies.
- sailing hat, helmsman hat, or cap with retainer clip.
- high-quality sailing jacket (inshore, coastal, and offshore jackets all have different linings)
What do you wear to ocean sailing?
Musto Thermal and fast wicking caps and hats keep the water and sun away from your eyes, while the premium footwear, gloves and socks ensure that you sail in complete comfort. Wherever the journey takes you, stay prepared with a waterproof holdall to keep your kit safe and dry.
What do I need for first time sailing?
First-time sailors should wear the following:
- Sunblock (to prevent painful sunburns)
- Life jacket (in case you fall into the water)
- Sailing boots (for grip on wet floors)
- Rain gear (for rainy weather)
- Sailing gloves (for maintaining grip)
- Spray top (for protection from wind and rain)
Is 70 degrees too cold for boating?
Any temp less than 70 degrees is dangerous. So really, probably the worst thing about cold weather boating is the danger if you fall in. If it’s really cold and you are bundled up, you don’t have as much flexibility. If you have gloves on, you can’t get the same grip.
What do you wear when sailing in the cold?
Make sure you have the necessary pieces: merino wool or synthetic blend base layers, wool socks, insulating mid-layers, stocking cap, mittens, and maybe even a heavy layer. One item I always bring is a good old fashioned wool sweater. It’s warm – wet or dry – and cozier than a synthetic top.
Do you get wet when sailing?
Clothing. Small boat sailing is essentially a swimming activity, and all sailors planning to sail on our Opti’s, 420’s, and Lasers should head out prepared to get wet. Sonar sailors should plan to have wet feet, but are not as likely to get as wet. Your clothes must keep you warm in a cool breeze, even when wet.
Should you wear jeans on a boat?
Keep clothing basic A pretty good rule of thumb: whatever you wear, make sure you don’t care if it gets wet. Denim jeans or cut-offs are always handy, since they are tough fabric and also comfortable.
What do you wear sailing in hot weather?
Given that sailors are constantly exposed to sun, choosing clothing with a high UPF is a no-brainer. We like: You’ll need a long sleeve option for cooler days (and more sun protection!) and a short sleeve shirt for hot summer sails. A long sleeve shirt can also serve as a baselayer under rain or foul weather gear.
What do you wear under a sailing jacket?
Some sailors prefer to wear a drysuit in winter. This is an entirely waterproof suit with tight rubber seals around your neck, ankles and wrist. So you can wear ordinary warm fleecy clothes underneath, even if you fall in the water, you’ll stay bone dry.
What do you wear under sailing trousers?
Take some thermal base layer leggings and some socks for your bottom half, so you can layer up under your waterproof trousers. Top Tip: Before you head out sailing have your layers to hand, preferably somewhere out of the way but easy to get to in case the waves pick up.
What should I pack for a week long sailing trip?
Check the list of what your boat will come with, and then ensure that you remember to bring along:
- Passport and licenses and copies of each.
- Soft-sided luggage like a backpack or duffle bag.
- “Dry Bags” or ZipLock bags for money and electronics.
- Travel size shampoo, soap, toothbrush, and toothpaste.
