Re: Your sailing "must have".

My must have is Cate.

The rest I can either fudge or get away with improvising something, or do without if need be..

Re: Your sailing "must have".

Good solid, easy to deploy in a hurry, ground tackle.

Binoculars.

Foulies.

Rum &or Beer. (though a really good cuppa REAL British tea is just as good)

If the above are present and in good order I don't need anything else.

Re: Your sailing "must have".

A Windex at the masthead. When sailing in sight of land I'd much rather have it than a compass.

Yeah, I sailed for a year without one and without telltales on my sails. I was hoping I would develop an innate "feel" for the perfect wind angle. Crap. Absolute crap. Now I happily stare at the windex and woolies all the time while sailing. Makes for a stiff neck sometimes but I sure go up wind better....

Re: Your sailing "must have".

Sunglasses. I forgot sunglasses. They're definitely my #1 item. I won't ever go sailing without them, even in the winter. Sensitive eyes I guess.
