What to bring onboard - Many times it can be colder on the bay in the summer than in the winter, so plan accordingly. Most often we are in long pants, tee shirt and a fleece. The key is to be prepared for really nice weather (ie. shorts and a tee shirt) or really cold and windy weather (ie. layers with gloves and a hat). Very rarely have we needed gloves but if you are prone to getting cold, it is not a bad idea. Sunscreen and hats are needed too. For lunch, your best bet is a hardy sandwich and maybe some munchies. As we never know what the conditions will be when lunch comes around, you want it to be easy.
