Summer is fast approaching, and pretty soon it’s going to be scorching hot outside, making it the perfect weather for renting a boat for a party on Book2Sail.  We’ve taken it upon ourselves to put together a few essentials that you really, really need to pack – to make your boat party a smooth sailing experience.

1. Arguably the most important boat party essential … Sunscreen

A bright-red sunburned body is not exactly nautical chic. Since you’ll be spending all day in the sun, not only do you need to apply sunscreen before you board the boat, but you also need to reapply every three hours.

2. Sunglasses

Keep your eyes happy and protected from the bright sunlight, so finish off your boat party look with some cool shades.

3. Water. Plenty of water

Hydration is so important when you’re out in the sun, especially if you’re going to be indulging in a few cocktails. So make sure that you carry plenty of water with you at all times.

4. Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a must for any trip. Whilst unlikely, medical emergencies can happen and take out a travel insurance policy is a small price to pay for your peace of mind.

5. Waterproof bag for your essentials

Getting your personal belongings wet is sure to ruin your party. Wet-proof them, by making sure they’re in a tight waterproof, zip-locked bag.

6. Sensible footwear

Let’s get real, boats and heels are not a match made in heaven.  Besides being painful, they’re also not very safe. We suggest you invest in a stylish pair of boat shoes – they are called boat shoes for a reason! If boat shoes are not your thing, then opt for a comfy yet fashionable pair of sandals.

7. Something to keep you warm

It might be summer but nights out on the water can be chilly.  So, when the sun sets and the party’s still in full swing, make sure that you have a lightweight jacket or a cute, warm cover-up to throw over your shoulders.

Now all you need to get ready is to gather a group of friends and rent a boat! Happy partying!
