If you’re interested in going on a boat trip, you’re not alone — boating is one of the most popular outdoor hobbies in America. But before you take to the open seas, it’s important to be prepared for everything that mother nature has to offer. Here are some essential items to bring on any and every boating trip.
Even if you’re not riding on The Maid Of The Mist in Niagara Falls, there’s still a good chance your boat could hit a wave and splash everyone on deck. In order to be prepared for any type of matter no matter how inclement, it’s important to bring some sort of waterproof rain gear. Rain boots are also a good idea, especially if you’re fishing. When it comes to boating attire, it’s always better to be overprepared than underprepared.
Sunscreen is another critical item to bring on a sailing trip, whether for team building or personal pleasure. Being out in the sun for even a few hours can cause a severe burn, especially for those with lighter skin tones. Always stay protected with an SPF of 30 or more, and make sure to liberally reapply your sunscreen every couple of hours for maximum protection against the sun’s harmful rays.
Whether you’re on a peaceful yacht tour or quiet fishing trip, having a buddy to converse with is always ideal. The best boating trips generally include as many people as possible to maximize the fun. If you have a big enough boat, or multiple boats that you can tie to each other, try to plan a big sailing trip at some point in your life. You’re bound to make once in a lifetime memories with the friends you bring along, and you’ll have stories to pass down to your relatives for years and years to come. Sailing truly is one of the best ways to connect with mother nature and enjoy that everything the open seas have to offer.
