If you plan to get a taste of the Mediterranean on your trip to Europe, Sardinia may be the right choice for you. Why not give the holiday a further boost and go on a sailing holiday instead. Sailing holidays can be a lot of fun. What’s more, it gives you a chance to explore Sardinia in a unique and fun way.
If you have never been on a sailing holiday, you have all the more reason to give it a try. Here are some tips and pointers to help you get started.
Sailing requires planning your clothes wisely. While you can spend your days sunbathing on the deck, the sea breeze can make the evenings chilly. Though you will never need full blown winter wear, it is a good idea to bring along some warm clothes too. Also, don’t forget to pack some waterproof clothes, especially if you plan to take a dip in the beautiful waters. It would also be handy during a strong wind to keep your clothes from getting wet. Remember to carry all the necessary documents with you. Do not carry very heavy luggage as there are space constraints on sailboats. Instead, opt for duffel bags. Don’t forget to carry some emergency medications with you, just in case.
Take it Easy
If this is your first sailing trip, you might feel some sea sickness initially. However, don’t let this dampen your mood. You will soon get acclimatized to the rolling waters and start enjoying the view. The crew on board will help you with any sea sickness and also train you on safety protocols.
Beware of the Sun
While a sailing trip presents a great opportunity for some sunbathing, be aware of the dangers from prolonged sunbathing. The sun that you encounter when at sea can be much harsher and lead to sunburn. Use plenty of sunscreen and avoid staying out in the sun for extended periods.
Explore the Lands
When the boat is docked, make sure to explore the shores of Sardinia. You can always explore the boat and the facilities provided on it while at sea.
Make the most of your sailing holiday to Sardinia and make it a memorable experience.
