Shielding Yourself from the Glorious Sun

Sailing under the bright sun can be both exhilarating and challenging. Especially when it comes to safeguarding your skin and body! Therefore, to avoid sunburn and sunstroke, follow these simple steps: 

Lather up: Before setting sail, apply a high SPF sunscreen generously on all exposed areas of your skin. Additionally, remember to reapply every few hours, particularly after swimming.

Don the right gear: A wide-brimmed hat and lightweight, long-sleeved clothing offer excellent protection from the sun’s rays. In addition, don’t forget to wear sunglasses with UV protection to shield your eyes.

Seek shade: Find refuge in the shade to reduce sun exposure. Also, take every opportunity to take a swim in beautiful Croatian coves!

Conquer Seasickness

For some, seasickness can be a challenge that threatens to dampen the sailing spirit. However, fear not! Namely, there are several remedies to help keep seasickness at bay: 

Choose the right time: Opt for sailing when the sea is calmer, usually in the morning or early afternoon when winds tend to be milder.

Fix your gaze: Keep your eyes on the horizon to help stabilize your sense of balance and reduce the chances of feeling queasy.

Light food and water: Nibble on a light, easy-to-digest snack like saltine crackers or fruit like apple and bananas. Furthermore, do not forget to drink water. Also, avoid caffeinated beverages that dehydrate your body.

Medicinal aids: Over-the-counter motion sickness medications or pressure point wristbands can provide relief for more severe cases.
