What to Expect From Your First Time on a Yacht Charter You’ve booked your yachting trip, packed your bags … now what? If you have never been on a yacht before, you might have a few questions about what to expect. What should you wear? Will you get sea sick? Why should you board a yacht in the first place? To put your mind at ease, here are some tips for you to consider before your first time on a yacht charter.
What to wear You’re probably familiar with the stereotypical images of people on yachts wearing sailor hats, polo shirts, and sweaters over their shoulders. But what you need to really think about when you get dressed for your yachting expedition is comfort. Closed-toe, non-slip shoes are preferable over sandals for safety reasons. The clothes you wear are up to you. You might consider wearing your bathing suit underneath shorts and a t-shirt and bringing along a light jacket. Jewelry will only get in the way so keep it minimal, and tie your long hair back. Make sure to bring sunscreen and sunglasses to protect your skin and eyes.
Seasickness It’s easy to dress for yachting, but preparing for seasickness is another story. If you are prone to other types of motion sickness, you are more likely to succumb to seasickness. However, there are a few things you can do to prevent it. Be sure to get plenty of rest leading up to your yachting trip and avoid eating anything heavy or greasy that can contribute to nausea in general. There are a variety of medications available to prevent motion sickness, so be sure to plan ahead and take some with you. If you start to feel seasick on the yacht, get on deck into the fresh air. Looking at the horizon can be a simple but effective way to combat the feeling of seasickness.
Why go yachting at all While you might be nervous about how to dress or what to do if you get seasick, that shouldn’t get in the way of your desire to go on a yacht. A yacht charter can give you a tour unlike any other, one that combines luxury and privacy with flexibility and freedom. Whether you are looking for an intimate experience or want to share your tour with friends, a charter yacht is the perfect way to get away from it all without giving up any elements of comfort.
