FAQ
How should I dress?
The main rule is to dress comfortably and wear clothes that matches the weather.

Clothing:

  • Windbreaker and pants or shorts;
  • T-shirt / jacket with UV protection (thermal underwear and fleece sweatshirt);
  • Hat / cap, gloves;
We recommend that you purchase a long-sleeved sweater with UV protection to protect yourself from sun and wind.

Shoes for a yacht:
  • Light non-slip sole so as not to leave marks on the hull of the boat;
  • Fixed heel;
  • Tight closed toe.

When moving around the deck without shoes, you can fall or injure your toes and feet — there are many parts on a boat that is easy to trip over. Unfortunately, even experienced sailors can be injured when they neglect this simple rule.
Will I be seasick? What should I do if I have sickness?
Most people tolerate some seasickness easily. If you feel that you are starting to feel sick, it is best to get at the steering wheel or tune the sails. Get yourself busy, show your body that you don't have time to get sick, you have to fight for victory in the race. There are also many quite effective medicines from sickness. If you start taking them in advance, then the probability of seasickness is almost zero.
Safety on a yacht
All yachts undergo a technical inspection before going on the water. As a rule, boats are not older than a few years. The captain will instruct you on water safety.
Are there sockets on the yacht? Do electrical appliances work?
On all yachts you will have 220 V with the engine-generator turned on, as well as electricity when staying in marinas. Most yachts are made in Europe and have European sockets and voltage. Just in case, we recommend taking a portable charger with you to charge phones and tablets.
Is there WiFi on the yacht?
As a rule, there is no WiFi on the boat, but in some marinas or cafes, you can find free WiFi. In general, we recommend that you take a break from gadgets for the duration of the cruise.
Can I sail on a yacht if I can't swim?
Yes, of course. There are life vests and other flotation devices on a yacht. Follow safety precautions at all times.
Can I take children on a yacht?
You can and you should! Children, as a rule, are very fond of such trips. If all the safety measures onboard are followed, you have nothing to worry about. The main thing is to understand that you will take care of the child by yourself, so you are to decide when you are ready to take children with you.
