Getting ready for a sailing trip? I mean: Who wouldn’t want to sail some turquoise waters on a yacht for a week, right?

Whether you are about to embark on the trip of a lifetime or simply gathering some inspiration for upcoming adventures, have a look to these tips.

I guarantee you they will come in handy sooner or later!

 

  • PACK LIGHT, TRAVEL FAR.

A very basic rule for having fun traveling. The less you pack for a trip like this, the more free and liberated you will feel in your cabin and, therefore, the happier you will be!

 

  • SCHEDULES ARE SET BY DAYLIGHT. AND YOUR SKIPPER.

Enough said.

 

  • RESPECT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY.

And you will feel at home. Simple.

 

  • EMBRACE OPPORTUNITIES.

If the sun is shining right now and you feel like swimming, just do it! There might be no other chances later on. Same applies for fishing. If you are into that, just set your line and wait for the fish to come your way.

 

  • PLAN YOUR SIMPLE MEALS IN ADVANCE.

The solely fact of having limited storage room for groceries or a small kitchen area shouldn’t stop your creativity. You can create the most nutritious and yummy meals with just a handful of ingredients!

 

  • KNOW YOUR LIMITS.

You might be an adrenaline junkie or the most balanced person on earth but, here is a very important thing, being seasick is also that can happen to anybody, anytime. Even seasoned skippers and experienced sailors get seasick sometimes so there are some chances it will happen to you too. What takes us to the next point.

 

  • PACK BIODRAMINA.

Chew some biodramina chicle or gum 20 minutes before departure. And carefully pack also your medicines. There is not such thing as overseas pharmacies.

 

  • MIND YOUR BELONGINGS.

Bring everything you will most likely need outside. Sunglasses, towel, swimming costume, sweater, cellphone, camera, coffee and snacks. Going up and down to grab stuff if you tend to feel seasick is not fun.

 

  • MODERATION. MODERATION. MODERATION.

Moderate your eating. And drinking. Overdoing one or both is dangerous and, therefore, unacceptable in the middle of the sea, where there is enough to take care of already without needing extra worries.

 

  • KEEP YOURSELF HYDRATED.

Take enough drinkable water on board. And drink it.

 

  • GET READY FOR UNSTABLE CONDITIONS.

Such as getting wet, dealing with extreme winds, lacking mobile network, postponing your meals.. sea conditions will determine your life rhythm once again

 

  • KEEP YOUR SHIT TOGETHER.

Your cabin tidy and clean, and your gadgets safe. And this also applies for common areas like indoors and outdoors living space, kitchen and bathrooms. A boat in the water is always moving. Sometimes very smoothly, so much you could fall asleep like a baby in a berth. Some others so much that you will start wondering what are the chances of the whole thing capsizing.

 

  • SHARING IS CARING.

Pay extra care to what is needed around you and, if you can help someone, go the extra mile for that. You are sharing a limited space and you might need something tomorrow as well.

 

  • DO NOT BE THE SMARTEST GUY IN THE CLASSROOM.

Unless you are experienced in sailing, trust me, you have no idea of what you are getting into. Listen to the one who knows and is leading, the skipper is your friend! And follow the given instructions. There will be many times when you will be able to make decisions. But some others you will just have to follow orders. Safety is always first.

 

  • PRESERVE YOUR RESOURCES.

Water and electricity overall. But also food, clean clothes, energy. Plan the use of your devices in advance if possible. Once you leave the port you are unplugged. Only small devices like cellphones should be charged then using an emergency plugin. Laptops, cameras, hair dryers and more. Embrace the fact that you are experiencing something different than your average day if that is the case, and once again plan accordingly.

 

  • BE PATIENT AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED.

Accept uncertainty and lower your expectations.

 

  • DRESS THE PART.

It is very difficult to look awesome like you would in any other occasion… unless you go with the flow and accept where you are. Specially if you are a girl, choose comfortable outfits, little to no jewelry and, if you have curly hair you can also leave the straightener home. It is useless.

 

  • GET READY TO LEAVE.

Once you finally feel comfortable sailing, the sea sickness has abandon you days ago and you start thinking about actually moving to a boat, get ready to get land sickness. It does not last long, but it actually is a thing. Everything around you moves and you could feel like you are drunk. Luckily, this only last a few mins.

 

BONUS TIP!
If you are ready to give it a go, choose your destination wisely. For beginners, I’d definitely recommend Malta. This European archipelago has the perfect size to fall head over heels for sailing with all the commodities you could wish for and keeping always a short distance to the shore so you’ll be able to enjoy everything the country has to offer.

The number of holiday visitors to the island rose by 0.5 percent while the number of hotel nights increased by 1.5 percent.

The National Office of Statistics in Valletta said total arrivals during the first five months of 2015 amounted to 572,409 – an increase of 2.1 percent over the same period in 2014, which was already a record year for tourism.

Total nights spent went up by 1.6 percent, reaching nearly three million between January and May.

Malta Tourism Authority chief executive Paul Bugeja welcomed the figures as good news which ‘continues to consolidate Malta’s competitiveness as a tourism destination in the years to come’.

He added: ‘These results continue to confirm the trend emerging from the overall inbound tourism figures which indicate very clearly that the number of tourists choosing to stay in non-collective private accommodation is increasing at a much faster rate than in collective accommodation’.

Visit Malta with Maltaway viaggi personal traveller

Air Malta has achieved 6th place in the ‘Best Regional Airlines in Europe’ category at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2015.
For the fifth consecutive year Air Malta has been rated as one of the top airlines in the regional airlines category of carriers that operate predominately short haul or regional international flights.
The awards are the global benchmark of airline excellence and the primary benchmarking tool for passenger satisfaction levels of airlines throughout the world.
The survey was conducted online between September 2014 and May 2015 with 18.9 million customer surveys completed, across a range of survey topics. The survey covered full-service and low-cost airlines and measured standards across 41 key performance indicators of airline front-line product and service. More than 105 different nationalities participated covering over 245 airlines from largest international airlines to smaller domestic carriers.
It was based on measuring customer satisfaction for the passenger experience across both airport and on-board environments – including check-in to boarding, on-board seat comfort, cabin cleanliness, food, beverages, in-flight entertainment, staff service and associated travel items. Data weighting is applied to provide nomination equity when evaluating airlines of different size.
“Air Malta is rolling out a number of initiatives aimed at putting customer at the heart of the organisation. The airline will be focusing more on enhancing customer experience and showing that the airline cares more,” the airline said.

In a statement, the Malta Tourism Authority said Malta was outperforming most of Europe as tourist arrivals continue to grow as a faster rate.

According to the the World Tourism Organisation, international tourism demand continued to be ‘robust’.

Prospects for the May-August period remained upbeat, with close to 500 million tourists expected to travel abroad during these four months.

The MTA said it shared this optimism as inbound tourism to Malta was expected to continue to grow in summer.

A spokesman for the Malta Tourism Authority said: ‘From the Maltese perspective, it is satisfying and encouraging to note that Malta’s tourism performance during the first four months of the year shows that inbound visitors to Malta increased by an impressive 5.6 per cent.

‘This implies that Malta’s performance continues, yet again, to exceed the growth rates for both the entire World and Europe: proof that Malta is sustaining its trend of outperforming overall growth rates at global, continental and regional levels’.
