    What to bring


    Please come prepared in clothing and footwear that you can get wet in.

    For most of the year a wetsuit would be ideal but layers are important to keep you warm as you can be sat around and possibly get wet. The club does not have a supply of wetsuits- please bring your own.

    Quick drying layers, base layers, fleeces and a waterproof layer can all help. A waterproof layer can help keep the wind chill off. Trainers work well as a footwear option. In sunny, warm weather please consider suncream. A change of clothes and a towel for going home in is useful.

    If you wear glasses please consider wearing a glasses retainer strap.

    Killington Sailing Club is 600 feet above sea level, more exposed and generally colder than Arnside. Remember that it also tends to be cooler on the water than on land. It is better to bring too much clothing than too little.

    Buoyancy Aids

    We can provide buoyancy aids, sailing gloves and safety helmets (particularly for children) If you have your own buoyancy aid (min 50N, in good condition, appropriate for your size- see the label on the inside), please bring it with you, the instructor will make a decision on its suitability before going on the water.
