The outfit is a sailing outfit or a normal outdoor outfit. If the weather forecast promises rain, you should wear waterproof clothing. Especially in the spring the air is at sea colder than on land. Several thin layers are better than one thick one when there is a need for warm clothes. By layering, it is possible to adjust the clothing as needed. Gloves should be included for handling ropes. Light-soled shoes or other non-marking shoes are best. Rain boots or other waterproof shoes. In cold weather a beanie or in sunny weather a cap are useful. The boat has life jackets for everyone.
