With all holidays it is advisable to take out personal travel insurance to cover, cancelling or cutting short your holiday, Emergency medical expenses, Travel delay and missed departure, Personal possessions etc.. There are many companies that provide this and you may also have cover with your household policy.

Provisions

In all our bases, provisioning is not a serious problem, since there are supermarkets inside or close to the marina of departure. If you want to order in advance, fill in our provisioning form and everything will be delivered to you upon your arrival on the yacht. Ask us for our provisions list and do not forget to return your order to us at least ten days before your arrival.

What to Bring with you

Thanks to our complete inventory and specifications, the only things you have to bring with you are clothes and personal items. Do not forget cotton trousers, lots of t-shirts, swimming apparel, deck shoes, shorts, casual evening wear, large sea towels, your music CDs, a sun-hat and sunscreen are recommended. At the beginning and at the end of the season light waterproof weather gear is recommended, it may also be necessary. Since storage space in the yachts is rather limited, it is better to carry your clothes in soft-sided bags and not in suitcases.

For optimum organization, it would be appreciated if we could be informed of your arrival time at least 15 days before your departure. Checking, control, and briefing about the yacht's equipment can only be done properly during daylight hours, in case you arrive after sunset, we will take care of the inventory checking the following morning.
