Packing list - sailing trip
Updated: Nov 27, 2020
Whether it is the first or the 10th time, one question always arises: What do I take with me?
I will given an answer to this question in this article and provide you with a packing list. There are some things on a sailing trip that differ from a “normal” vacation. So think carefully, what you really need.
What do I take with me?
Of course, there is a big difference in the packing list if you are traveling for 1 year, one week, in Scotland, or in the Mediterranean Sea. My focus here is on a one-week sailing trip in the Mediterranean in summer.
One tip in advance: Don't take too much with you. There is very little space on board. Suitcases, for example, are a bad idea, bags that you can fold up are better suited.
