Safety on board
You don't need to bring a life jacket as certified life jackets belong to the standard safety equipment.
Possibly an anti-seasickness agent (eg Primatour). Earplugs will offer a solution if you sleep lightly.
Proof of identity (after all, you also sail at national borders in the Netherlands)
If you use medication that you need to take or in an emergency, you must inform the instructor in advance. Information remains confidential This is possible in a closed envelope. We request that you inform the office of medical matters that are important for a longer stay at sea.
It is absolutely forbidden to bring drugs on board.
Budget / food on board
You prepare a cash box together. Food and harbor dues are paid from the cash. The amount per day is usually between 15 and 25 euros.
You usually eat together on board. In terms of budget you can think of what you normally eat.
In the Netherlands, a seppkey is generally used for showers, charged by the on-board greenhouse. To be sure, coins of 1 euro and 50 cents are useful for cases when the showers do not yet work with a sepkey. When abroad, showering is often included in the port dues.
Electronics on board
If you want to record a few things, the photo / film device must not fail. We really enjoy reading your story and posting it on the site. Ensure proper protection of brought electronic equipment, also in cabinets on board. Also consider a laptop or iPad, etc. On a boat there is always a more or less humid environment! We are not liable for moisture damage
In the ports there is 220 V on board for example to charge your mobile etc. Only 12v connections during sailing.
