Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

I bring a short rope (6 ft x 1/4") and cloth pins for hanging stuff.

Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

Looks like the list has already been covered. I would only add to bring a small alarm clock or phone with alarm (and 12V phone charger) so you can be awake and ready for your watch. Sunglasses and sunscreen are good personal items to include. Earplugs can be good or bad, but might be worth bringing along. I used to think of them as bad because you can't hear what's going on on the boat, or might miss an "all hands on deck call" but a couple of years ago on a 2 day race I shared a V-berth with a crew member with REALLY BAD sleep apnea and basically didn't get any sleep at all, which negatively affected my ability to crew the next day. Now, they're in the kit.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

Agree, inability to sleep or rest is fatal. If someone is prone to have insomnia, ask one's doctor to prescribe some sleeping pills. Get some good stuff, OTC does not work well. LOL.

Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

By the look at all the stuff people suggest you take you will need your own boat to transport it!

Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

Everything's been mentioned that I would bring, except you don't say what is the showering situation. I know some who bring moist towelettes in a baggie so there's some sense of cleanliness each day. A head lamp is a must-have, but make sure it has a RED light. Ear plugs are great for dampening sound, and it's surprising what you can hear with them in. I'd also bring an eye cover thingee if the light bothers you while trying to sleep during the day. And while you're loading down your duffle, don't forget your camera to capture those BFS moments that you plan to post afterwards ;-)

Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

I'd like to put in my bit of thanks to everyone. I've been looking at getting a kit together for someday going out with others so the lists posted will be very helpful.

Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

And maybe add in your own favorite sunblock. Some music, because most folks like to hear something they haven't heard before. And a bag of something tasty for night watches, because everyone likes Other People's Food, too. (G) Small surprises like that are always loved.

You may want to take a pillow or towel as well, sometimes that's the same thing and if you like to sleep one particular way, compress it down and take it. (I don't carry a pillow, but there's always something in particular I'll be using as one.)
