Here is a list of the gear you will need to be comfortable and safe as we sail this season.
Type 3 personal flotation device (PFD) in good condition, that fits well.
Fleece or wool hat
This gear needs to come to all regattas and practices.
Other stuff you may want to have:
Sailing booties (you can use old sneakers and wool socks instead)
Polypro inner layers
A waterproof watch is very helpful
There are a lot of sailors who outgrow stuff in the four years with the team and you may be able to hunt up some used gear. E-mail appeals to other BHS Sailing families have worked well in the past. FoBIHSS does provide some support options please contact one of the Board Members for information.
