Sailing Trip Packing List

Your sail charter is booked and now all you’ve got to do is pack your bags. While we won’t tell you to contain your excitement, we’d like to help you determine what to pack for a cruise through the Caribbean on-board a crewed yacht charter.

Although a week or more away from home can seem like a long while, most first time charterers over pack. Island life is casual, you don’t need much when you spend most of your days in a swimsuit in the sun.

Here is a customized checklist to help you plan for your trip. You can also download and print our Sailing Trip Packing List below
