Visiting Windancer IV?
Here is a list to help you pack:
- Soft, duffel luggage to fold up and store, otherwise you may find yourself sleeping in your suitcase
- Snorkelling gear – if you love to jump in and explore life under the surface, we recommend you bring snorkel, mask and fins
- Thin towels – it takes long for anything to dry on board, even in the Caribbean heat. The thinner the towel the better
- Shower tote – we often visit marinas to take advantage of unlimited running hot water; we have hot water and an awesome shower, but it is a limited resource
- Flip flops, sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat (either well fitted or with a strap) – it gets hot in the day
- Rash guard – to protect your skin, in case you pursue # 2 above
- Light clothing – think about balancing the heat with protecting yourself from the sun. In sailor terms, we wear each t-shirt 4 ways: front, back, inside out front and inside out back
- Lots of bathing suits
- Ear plugs – life on a boat can get creaky.
- Runners – or closed-toed shoes for hikes ashore or walks in the markets
- Charger for phones and electronics – Windancer has a USB charging station, but you should bring your own cords
Some things not to bring:
- Heals – even the nicest 5 star restaurants take you in flip flops, plus if you puncture the dinghy you may forfeit the damage deposit
- Jewellery – no, although there are not pirates, your best accessory is a smile and no tan lines. There are still thieves and the chance of losing something or snagging something is real. Plus, nothing like shopping the markets for local treasures.
- Drugs and weapons –no and no
- Heavy weather sailing gear. Daily attire, when not in bathing suits and cover ups, is shorts and t-shirts. Sarongs can be your best friend.
- Long pants – except to travel down in.
