What to bring

sailing_rainy_daysailing_sunny_dayWeather conditions in Marina del Rey can be (and usually are) very different from conditions only a few miles inland. Be prepared for both warm and cool temperatures. And, remember, sailing is a water sport, so be ready to get wet!

What to Bring

  • Closed-toe, non-leather shoes with non-marking (light colored, not black!) and non-slip soles
  • Sunscreen and a hat
  • Sunglasses (with Croakies® or a cord to keep them on)
  • Clothing appropriate for water activities and the expected weather conditions (fleece is good, cotton and denim are not; consider “layering”)
  • Bring a lunch or snack and plenty of water (or be prepared to go off site to eat). Sorry, we do not have vending machines on site.
  • Change of clothing and shoes
  • Towel and bathing supplies
  • Lock (for day use lockers)

What NOT to take out on the water

  • Valuables (flotation is inversely proportional to value)
  • Cell phones, pagers or any item that might be subject to water damage

The MAC Provides

  • Personal Flotation Device (PFD)
  • Wet suits (free during classes and while renting)
  • Rack for keys available in the issue room
  • Day-use lockers (bring your own lock)
  • Bike rack


  • Sailing gloves (especially for upper-level classes)
  • Boat shoes with non-skid, light colored non-marking soles
  • Dinghy sailing boots or wet suit booties
  • Windbreaker (preferably waterproof or water-resistant)
