“There is no such thing as bad weather-only bad clothes.” We may encounter a constantly changing weather conditions while we are cruising. By considering this situation we should put waterproof duffel-bag and fill it with sailing gear. Include a foul weather jacket, complete change of clothes, wide-brimmed hat etc. That way, if you get spray or rain or stay out longer than excepted, you will stay dray and warm in most any sailing weather.
You should l check the weather forecast on radio or on your smart phones, before and while cruising. There are a lot of significant things which are affected your cruising. Sometimes the wind may shift or there will be unexpected rain or storm. If you check the weather conditions, you can change your strategy or passages.
