By Yacht Week

Posted on 22nd November 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.
  • Caribbean Sunset Party - Embrace vibrant hues of orange, pink, yellow and red as we welcome 2024 in a true Yacht Week fashion. See inspo here.
  • Beach Chic Party -Elegant beachwear galore. Dress to impress. 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)
  • 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!
  • Country flag
  • Aux cable
  • European adapter
  • Phone charger and battery pack
  • Disposable underwater camera / GoPro
  • Your own water bottle to minimise plastic use

  • Fairy/LED lights for your yacht

Documents 📚

What not to pack 🚫

  • Heavy clothing - wool takes a long time to dry
  • Expensive jewellery
  • Water-balloons. Bits of plastic in the ocean is a big no no ☝
  • Linens and pillows, they’re provided for you
