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.

Never forget
  • Identity document

  • Driving license

  • Cash

  • Credit card (DKB)

Clothing (pack in a big bag)
  • Long trousers

  • Short pants

  • T-shirts

  • Sweaters

  • Light jacket

  • Socks

  • Underpants

  • Bikini/Swimming trunks

  • Shirt/dress

  • Flip-flops

  • Cap/Sun Hat

  • Sunglasses (https://amzn.to/2AFKCF5)


  • Make-up

  • Earropax

  • Sun cream (dm or Aldi is perfectly fine)

  • Contact lenses

  • Deodorant

  • Skin Cream

  • Shampoo/shower gel

  • Toothpaste

  • Toothbrush

  • Nail scissors

  • Shaver/Shaving foam

  • Medication (diarrhea, plasters, disinfection, seasickness)

Especially for the sailing trip

You can get almost all of it from Amazon or Decathlon. I have tried all the products that I recommend myself and I am very convinced of them.

Everything else like toilet paper you can buy locally. For details on this, see also our shopping list.
