What to Pack

Packing List for Power Courses

Please pack carefully. Be prepared for both cool and warm temperatures and remember that informal clothing is the rule in the islands. Please avoid suitcases by packing your gear in a pliable bag. Everyone will appreciate each other respecting the fact of limited storage space. Suggested items to bring:

  • We provide all bedding (comforter, pillow and linens).
  • Personal water bottle.
  • Earplugs (to block out sound at night, if needed).
  • Bath towel, shower flip flops, personal toiletries.
  • Fleece top and pants, wind-breaker and shorts. The key is clothing that can be layered or unlayered depending on the weather. polypropylene or capilene long underwear recommended.
  • Bathing suit (if on weeklong course, as there may be a marina stop that will include a pool and/or hot tub).
  • Warm socks
  • Warm cap or sun hat – usually depends on time of year.
  • Sunglasses and if applicable reading glasses.
  • Sunscreen and chapstick with SPF.
  • Rain gear (any PVC will do - - it need not be expensive).
  • Soft-soled non-marking shoes - good quality deck shoes are an excellent investment.
