Everyone who wants to sail will get a chance. If you just want to sit back and watch that is fine too. There isn't anything like the feel of the tiller in your hand while the boat charges smoothly through the waves! Plus you can pull on the strings and all that too....
Preparing for your adventure
1) Wear clothes. Warm clothes. Even on the sunniest days it is still chilly out on the water. It's best to wear layers (and ideally something water and wind proof). Sunglasses, gloves and hats (that don't blow off) are helpful. Please wear non-marking shoes if you have them! If you over-prepare, there's plenty of room down below to stow your extra gear.
Life Jackets are Provided.
2) Bring Snacks. Even if you just had dinner it is nice to share a bite with everyone together before we sail out.
What to bring? Anything that's easy to pass around and share (not salad). Here are some ideas: sushi, brownies, cheese and crackers, deli meats, brownies, finger sandwiches, berries and fruit, brownies and brownies.
BYOB. Wine is perfect for sailing. Some folks bring cocktails, juice, soda and/ or sparkling water. Again, think of something that is fun and nice to pass around.
We've got plastic wine glasses, a serving tray and cutting board onboard if you need it.
Things to Know
The head or bathroom aboard Feral is called 'The Bucket.' It's an emergency bathroom - and it's better to plan ahead to use the bathrooms in the marina. Trips out into the bay are usually 3-4 hours long; as long as you don't drink too much beer, you should be fine.
Please review the Waiver before we head out. You've got to agree before we get out on the bay.
