Posted on 18th May 2018

Our goal is to create a fun environment for everybody, while maintaining mutual respect on all sides for the benefit of our greater guest experience. We believe that if you look awesome, you'll feel awesome 😁

Travel Bag 🙌

Pack in a soft duffel-type bag to maximise space on the yacht, no hard suitcases!

Themed Events 🎉

Our themes are for all to enjoy and we invite you to express them – and yourself – in whatever manner you can imagine.
  1. Tropical Retro Party - All things summer: Crazy floral patterns, colourful attire, fruity props. See inspo here.
  2. Riviera Chic Party - Think French riviera: Blue and white with a touch of 50's sophistication. See inspo here.
  3. Dress to Express Regatta theme - No crew has ever won the regatta without dressing up! A crew uniform is essential. See inspo here.

Apparel 👙

Bathing suits Deck shoes, flips-flops and sandals. Sneakers if you’ll be hiking or running At night, restaurants are casual – shorts are fine Sunglasses and a hat (essential) – We’re stoked to present the official eyewear partner of The Yacht Week this year: Blenders. Choose between two seaworthy styles built to withstand UV rays and salt baes for all seven days. The durable polycarbonate frames, metal temple accents, and laser-etched logos of these limited-edition sunglasses are made to last from sunrise to sunset. Evenings can be cool – bring something warm


Bring a high factor sunscreen Aftersun Cleansing wipes Waterproof mascara for the ladies Lip balm (with SPF) Anti-nausea medication if you get sea sick

Essentials and nice to have’s ✅

A floatie of your choosing – If it’s too much of a hassle to bring your own float and you’d rather be a sustainable sailor this summer, save the bag-space and hope that there’ll be one up-cycled for you!
