Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

4676 Views 57 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  outbound
I am crewing from the Bahamas to the Chesapeake. This is my first offshore experience.

I am bringing my own foul weather gear, PFD w/ harness, and warm clothes that dry fast. Is there any other offshore equipment that is generally supplied by the crew themselves? For example, I don't have a tether, but know the boat owner does. Is that the type of thing where I should have my own?

I remember Capt Tom T at Maryland School of Sailing prohibits anyone bringing LED lights on board. I also carry a back up mini MagLite flashlight I can use if the Captain says no to my LED light.
What was the rationale behind banning LEDs?
