Kit List – Tall Ship Maybe

What To Pack For Your Adventure

GENERAL INFORMATION

Warm and waterproof clothing is very important, as it can get very cold during sailing, especially at night, even in the summer. A waterproof and windproof jacket is recommended to help keep warm and dry. Waterproof rubber soled boots or shoes are also recommended to keep your feet dry and warm. It is a good idea to bring two pairs of shoes in case one gets wet! We provide you with offshore heavy duty waterproof trousers and jacket for those times when it is really wet and cold.

Please remember that space on board is limited and pack accordingly. Pack comfortable and practical clothing for all weather circumstances, the key is layers!! It is recommended to pack in a soft bag that can be easily stored away as there is no room on board for suitcases.

Electricity on board is UK style 3 pin sockets, please be sure to bring any adaptors you may need. Please also note there is a non-smoking and no recreational drugs policy on board Tall Ship Maybe.

PASSPORTS, VISAS AND INSURANCE

If you voyage is sailing in foreign waters, you will require a full passport that is valid for at least 6 months after the end of the voyage. You will be responsible for obtaining any necessary visas.

EU citizens can obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This replaces the old E111 and is free of charge. Application forms are available from the Post Office or download at www.ehic.org.uk.

We have Third Party Liability Insurance on board Tall Ship Maybe. We request that all those sailing on board TS Maybe must take out relevant travel insurance to cover their voyage. We recommend Top Sail who are a company that specialise in tall ship sailing travel insurance.  You can view their products here.
