CLOTHING TO BRING:
Space is limited on Blackbeard’s sailboats and the islands we visit are very casual. Several bathing suits, shorts, long pants, several t-shirts, blouse/shirt and wind breaker all packed in soft luggage. Also deck shoes, sandals, sunscreen (non-oil), a hat and sunglasses. Don’t forget jammies since this is dormitory style, you’ll need something to sleep in besides your birthday suit! In winter, sweatshirts or sweaters are advisable. Personal items such as aspirin and decongestants.
