We’d love to know what reads you’d recommend – let us know on our Facebook page at LateSail Charters.
Music and Bluetooth speaker
There’s nothing better than having the freedom to listen to your music on a yacht charter holiday.
Our team has put together three different Spotify playlists you can tune into. We recommend you download these playlists before you leave home. But if you are UK-based and sailing in the EU, internet data will come from your personal allowance as normal.
Often forgotten but very important, a hat is an essential item to pack on a yacht charter. You’ll be spending a lot of time outside under the sun and it’s easy to get sunburnt without the additional protection and shade that a hat gives you.
We recommend a secure fitting cap or visor, or one with a retainer clip like these Musto ones. Some days will be windier than others and you don’t want to lose your hat when you’re miles away from the nearest shop.
A life jacket
We advise you to wear a life jacket on your charter, making sure it’s in good condition before using it. Emergency lifejackets are usually provided by our operators but we advise you to take your own.
According to the RYA, the Civil Aviation Authority says that passengers can take no more than two small carbon dioxide cylinders fitted into a self-inflating life-jacket, plus no more than two spare cartridges – subject to the airline’s approval.
If your keys or phone happen to go overboard, with a good float you won’t have to worry about diving down to get them!
Help support the RNLI in May
When you book with us during May, you can make a £5 donation to the RNLI with your booking. For every customer donation made, we will match it and also donate £5 to the RNLI.
The RNLI is the largest charity that focuses on saving lives at sea around the coast of the UK. We feel connected to this charity as our General Manager Sebastian, is a volunteer at his local RNLI station in Kent.
