Seabag Inventory

Sailing on the Chesapeake often means experiencing variable weather conditions, such as hot and humid days with chilly mornings and evenings.  Be prepared!  Bring weather-appropriate clothing for sailing and casual attire for trips ashore.

Think about:

  • Layers, such as t-shirt/shirt/sweatshirt/jacket to stay comfortable as temperatures rise and fall.
  • Sleepwear as sailboats do not allow for much privacy.  Light cotton shorts and tee shirts work well.  For bedding, bring a pillow and a light sleeping bag, sleep sack, or sheets and a quilt.

The following is a list of what members should bring.  Mandatory items are in Bold.  You should bring your items in a soft sided bag (without wheels for easy storage of the bag).
