Re: Info. for Guests Aboard

Goodness. If it was my first time sailing, I might think twice after reading that. Passport? How long are they going to be on board? You're suggesting fleece and wool and expecting to go swimming and diving? Recommending expensive gear like Helly Hanson? So, you're not just talking a daysail or weekend?

If you have to go into instructions that detailed, perhaps a daysail to get them used to the boat first to knock some things off the list as well as to see if they even like sailing before committing to all that gear.

That said, I have heard of making up a one-page list for guests, but I don't remember where I saw it. It was done in the form of a welcome letter and didn't sound nearly as dire and fraught with danger as the list you're suggesting.
