The most frequently asked questions, suggestions and attentions -
just everything a man/woman should know
- Please only enter the yacht with boat shoes: Boat shoes are shoes with a light-coloured, finely profiled rubber sole in which no stones can get wedged. Boat shoes are not trainers or sandals with a dark rubber sole, for example, because they leave nasty black marks on the deck and stones wedged in the sole scratch it. Shoes with leather soles or even heels are certainly not boat shoes. Best: BARFUß
- On-board toilet: Basically, the saying "Only put in the toilet what has gone through the stomach beforehand! is valid. Please do not throw any paper or solid objects into the on-board toilet. Fixing clogged toilets is a sh...(eußlich) job. As we already have electronic toilets, please do not use a toilet brush while flushing - the chopper is merciless!
Dinghy: The dinghy must never be pulled over rocks and beaches. Damage to the rubber material by sharp objects such as shells or stones can be prevented in this way. A defective dinghy is no joy for you or the charter company.
- Hatches: Hatches are not 100% "tread-proof"!....at least not for seasoned sea dogs with the appropriate weight. You should therefore avoid standing fully on the hatches. This will bend the hatch and cause it to leak. It is even worse to lower the hatch and let it rest on the locking levers without closing it properly - then a single kick is enough to bend and break the levers.
- Please always leave the levers in the position in which you opened the hatch when the hatch is open, this will prevent the hatches from resting on the closing levers. Hull hatches (other hatches where fitted) and seacocks (except those for the engine) must be kept closed at all times while underway to prevent dangerous water ingress.
- Water quality: Our water on board is not 100% drinking water quality, therefore the consumption of the water is at your own risk.
- Allergies/illnesses: Please be sure to state! We are not nosy - this is only for your own safety.
PACKING LIST - What needs to come along?
Well, it doesn't have to be a duffel bag, but it especially mustn't be a suitcase. Because there is absolutely no room for that on board.
This list is only intended as a guide. Not every detail is listed here and some things are not a must.
So have fun packing! And remember the maximum weight for air travel (economy).
Boarding shoes (an absolute must!!); non-marking, waterproof, with light-coloured soles, are only worn on board.
Country shoes Are NOT (and never!!!) worn on board.
Bathing slippers For the showers in the harbours; for stony bays (sharp stones and sea urchins)
Socks ???? At 30 degrees and more?
Long trousers For those who like it
Sailing gloves For those who think they need them

Sweaters/Sweatshirts 1 should be enough

Clothes Shore leave According to taste - and space in the bag
