Even tropical climates experience temperature and weather variations from season to season – but that’s no reason not to enjoy a sailing holiday. In fact, off-season travel can allow for better charter rental rates, more boat choices, and less crowded ports.
We’ve compiled a list of basics to consider adding to your packing list for your winter sailing holiday. With a little extra preparation, you’ll be ready to #setsail without sacrificing fashion or function
When weather calls for a closed-toe shoe over flip flops, every good sailor knows that a pair of deck shoes make a classy – and safety conscious – statement. Who better to turn to for a pair of classic boat shoes than Sperry? Known for decades as the go-to boat shoe brand, Sperry offers high-quality and comfortable deck shoes in a wide array of colors and styles for the whole family. No one-hit wonder, Sperry also features full clothing lines for men, women and children that include outerwear and swim plus rain and snow boots.
When it comes to stylish nautical jackets and clothing, Nautica always land at the top of the list. Popular with sailing enthusiasts since the 1980s, Nautica exudes and effortless, comfortable style that will take you from on deck to on land. Their casual jackets provide warmth in the cool evening breezes – and they look great too.
Nautica also shines bright when it comes to men’s casual dress with their line of wrinkle-free shirts and slacks – perfect options for looking great when you’re living out of a suitcase on the go!

Sailing Gear and Luggage
When it comes to keeping things watertight, Musto has it mastered. You’ll never regret snagging a couple of these dry bags to stow your must-stay-dry items. Easily stowable on a yacht, these bags roll flat to take up very little space in your luggage. Sweet!
