For class, your sailor must have the following:
1. Personal Flotation Device (a.k.a., PFD or life jacket/vest) - type 3 or better with an attached whistle. PFD must be Coast Guard Approved (look on the inside of the jacket for a code on it starting with 160).
Important: Zhik brand PFDs are NOT Coast Guard approved.
2. Closed-toe water/sailing shoes - no flip flops or sandals as they may catch on a cleat or more easily allow an injury to the foot.
3. SPF 30+ sunscreen - applied to all sailors each day prior to arriving for class
