• Rain gear
What To Wear:

conditions range from highs of sunny and 70 degrees down to rain, wind, and
45 degrees. All the layers in the world are useless if they get wet, so be sure to
bring along waterproof pants and coat. Even if cheap and disposable, some form
of raingear will still block most wind and rain.
• If you think you might be prone to motion sickness, or have never ventured
on the ocean before, be sure to take preventative measures! Motion sickness has
ruined the day for many a boater.
