What to eat?

First, it is best to avoid a heavy breakfast too. We recommend that you eat light foods and dry as rusks and biscuits and especially NOT drink milk or coffee that may be hard to digest at sea.



In the case of seasickness?

You'll get used to the boat after a short time. In any case, for those who does not know his reaction to the sea, we recommend you bring along Xamamina or patches against seasickness.
If you really do not have confidence in yourself it is better to apply patches or taking the pills a few hours before sailing, giving it time to take effect.


What to bring?

In a cruise on a sailboat you will not need much. It always ends up bringing the double of what would later use.
Obligatory soft bags. Banish suitcases that take up space even when empty and can not be stowed. Remember that space available is limited.
As for the excursions you should be comfortable clothing and layered and have something to out in the evening.

The hair dryer can be used when the boat is in port connected to the current to ground. In the bay ther's an inverter that converts the energy of batteries in 220V. We have 500W. On board we have a small hair dryer capable of operating, is at your disposal.

Linen is included in the price: pillowcases, mattress covers, sheets and blankets.
