Re: My first day sailer. What do you pack in yours?

I've sailed and motor boated all over the Norwalk Islands and also on Lake George. Congrats on your boat. We always loved to have a small soft sided cooler with a strap, the kind with extra pockets on the outside and vinyl covering. You can really load those things up with everything from sunscreen to flares to sandwiches or beer.

I'm a bit more concerned about the Norwalk part of you plan. Its protected but I would still get the dog a life preserver - at least if you tip over he will float. Don't go to close to any major navigational buoys - they attract big traffic - and you are in traffic in Norwalk a lot. I remember some really big fast yachts passing right by my boat and throwing an 8 foot wake at us - no exaggeration either.
