Is this a “show us what you got” thread? What you bring should be proportionate to what the trip is. This what I took on the PacCup – had to bring extras as I was packing for two weeks and the fact that we were crossing three climate zones (and no dodger). All this went into a single duffle including blanket for sleeping. I bring considerably less for a weekend race.

And I'm all over the leatherman - good idea.

AWWW HELL NO!! GB, I just saw your bag (that's what she said)! Dude, you win! Now label all that stuff smart guy so I can have a nice long shopping list!

Smack, can you give us at least a little info like the predicted number of days/nights at sea and the location or general climate? Big difference between the VanIsle 360 and Newport-Ensenada. A couple of quick observations, you need a tether, and perhaps a crotch strap. Can you return the light? ACR makes a strobe and holder that connects to the manual air-fill on the vest. It’s on the inside, always there and doesn’t take up much room. While you’re at it, throw out the cheapie whistle and replace it with one that will save your life. Get an extra cartridge for the vest – I have had these vests go off. I think the guys on the Volvo must all use manuals. Headlamp with red lens is good, I also carry a small maglite on one of those badge lanyards around my neck. I also do this with my personal knife. You’d be surprised how many times that knife will be in the wrong pants pocket when you need it.

GB, I just sent you a pm regarding the race. I don't want to talk about it just yet...but soon.

As for the other suggestions...I'm on it. Thanks.

No prob Smack. You’re represent’n Sailnet now and we don’t want you coming off as a total tool and dweeb when you step aboard the boat. This is a pretty quick trip so you won’t be getting used to the short sleep patterns so leave a lot of that personal stuff at home as you won’t have much time to use it – you will be racing pretty much every waking moment. Even if you are not hot bunking, space will be a premium and you will want to be able to stow everything in your bag before you go on watch. Nothing gets the ire of a crew more than somebody’s stuff scattered all over the cabin.

Somewhere in the world, Rob Proctor is sighing deeply and shaking his head in remorseful thought. Heh-heh.

Add a package of "Body Wipes" which is the same as baby wipes but has a different name on the package. This will reduce the usage of fresh water on board the boat and do just a good as a wash rag.
For some people they may need two packages of Body Wipes. Some people's stinky body parts may need going over twice or more times.
