Packing list – Crew

Packing list for the crew

What does the crew pack for a sailing trip?

Everyone knows it for sure – the next – or possibly the first – sailing trip is coming up. Full of anticipation you think about it and suddenly you stand disoriented and haphazard in front of your closet and do not know what to pack.

Don’t pack too much, the skippers tell you, don’t forget anything, you think to yourself.

We have tried to write a packing list that will satisfy both minimalist skippers and those who prefer to pack a bit too much, so that they can go on the boat with a good feeling.

However, before we present it to you, one thing should be said:

Always pack your things on the boat in a soft travel bag. Suitcases are usually hard to stow and then get in the way. Travel bags can be folded relatively small and “hidden” well on the boat.

Conclusion: The skipper is happy – nothing is standing around.

The crew is happy – nothing is in the way AND the skipper is happy.

Here now the general packing list for the perfectly organized boat crew:


No bulky suitcase, but rather a flexible bag or similar is recommended


Travel documents

(Passport, Entry documents, Vaccination certificate, Driver's license, etc.)


(Painkillers, antipyretics, antihistamines, gastrointestinal drugs, etc.).

maybe arrange with crew, so that not everything is 10-fold on board
