Are you an over-packer? We totally get it. Packing for a holiday is tricky at the best of times, especially when you really want to be prepared for all eventualities. So, in an attempt to make your life a bit easier, here are a few things you probably don’t need to pack for your Caribbean sailing trip.

Chilling out on sailing trips to the Caribbean - What to bring on your journey

A Stack of Books and Magazines

Before you object, we totally feel your pain. We love to read too and we’re keen for you to chill with a good book as often as you want, but do you really want to lug a stack of books to the airport? Your answer might be yes, in which case you do you, but if you’re not keen on the idea, instead bring as many eBooks as your heart desires.

Ditch Uncomfortable Shoes on your Sailing Trip

With so many incredible things to see and do in the Caribbean, the last thing you’ll want to have to worry about is soothing sore feet caused by some seriously uncomfy footwear. Be kind to yourself and your feet!

Your Whole Wardrobe

Trust us when we say that you really don’t need to bring 20 tees or seven pairs of shorts. Packing items that you can mix and match together will ensure you’ve got the perfect outfit to wear for every eventuality, but don’t stress about it too much. You’ll be having too much fun to really care what you’re wearing anyway! Just remember, comfort is everything!

An Array of Accessories

By all means, indulge your inner fashionista and accessorise your outfits, but you probably just won’t get the wear out of 12 necklaces, six pairs of sunglasses, and eight hats. No matter how fabulous they are.

Your Entire Beauty or Toiletries Cabinet

Apart from a good sunscreen and your toothbrush, you probably won’t need to bring much more. Make sure that whatever you do choose to bring is well packed to avoid leakages, and ensure you decant larger bottles of liquids into sturdy, travel-friendly bottles.
