Five Things to Pack: Sailing Weekend Trip

Summer arrived last weekend and we're ready for a break from reality -- for just a few days. That's why we'd love to spend a weekend sailing on the open seas. Even for just a a few days, a sailing weekend trip would be a great way to unwind and unplug. All you need is a sailboat and some water and you're set.

Well, maybe not "all set." There are some essentials you will need to pack to keep yourself safe and protected (and comfortable) all weekend long. Here are the five essentials we recommend packing: We suggest five things to pack for a sailing weekend trip, including a wind-proof jacket, non-slip shoes, towels, sunglasses with a lanyard and sunscreen. 1. Wind-proof Jacket: Even if it's 90 degrees when you leave the shore, it can get windy and even a little chilly while you're out on the water. Make sure you have a good, wind-proof jacket with you. This cute number from Musto is a good option. 2. Non-slip Shoes: This may be the most important thing. To prevent yourself (or the kids) from falling into the water, you want to make sure your feet are secure on deck. Opt for some cute, non-slip shoes, like these Sperry Top-Siders. 3. Towels: When you're on the water, you can never have too many towels. Bring more than you think you'll need because you and your stuff could end up in the water at any point. We love these extra soft Fouta Bath Towels. They'd look gorgeous in your bathroom but they'll keep you dry on the boat, too. 4. Sunglasses with Lanyard: These are important for two reasons. You need to see even when you're sailing toward the sun and you don't want to lose those glasses if you hit a couple bumps. And we agree that sometimes lanyards look dorky but if you grab a pair of adorable glasses, like this pair of Dolce & Gabanna sunglasses, and add some not-so dorky attachments, like this braided leather option from Chums, you'll be able to see through it all. 5. Sunscreen: We may sound like a broken record and we're sure you already know this one. But just in case you need a reminder, bring your sunscreen! If you're in need, you can stock up on Soleil Organique through the end of the month and get 20% off when you use coupon code SOJUNE13. Get your sunscreen now! What would you add to the list? Happy sails!
