Sun glasses, sun cream, sun hat
On a watersports holiday with Neilson in Sardinia, Croatia or Greece you should expect to pack for long, hot, sunny days. The watersports can be quite addictive and you’ll soon be spending large chunks of the day sailing, windsurfing, kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. Out on the water you might not feel the effects of the sun as much as on land due to the cooling effects of the wind and sea spray. The sun will reflect off the water intensifying the effects meaning it’s easier to get sunburnt or suffer from heatstroke, so it’s a good idea to minimise the risks.
Tried and tested basics are a hat (that won’t blow away), a decent pair of sunglasses (that won’t sink), you can buy sailing specific sunnies which float and are glare free, and most important of all a good quality waterproof sun cream. Remember to apply before you go out and top up regularly.
