Sea sickness tablets, multi vitamins, wet wipes, extreme weather wear, trench foot, dehydrated food, lack of sleep, no showers, no WiFi, away from home for 11 months. Hot bunking, a stinky sleeping bag, no privacy, no wine, waves, big waves, enormous waves, supermassive waves. Stary nights, raising money for East Cheshire Hospice @ Home, raising some money to pay to go. First training sail at the end of the month, knots, ropes, sails, upper body strength, balance, team work, dolphins, whales, seabirds.
Those are just some of the things to think about.
