Stay Warm & Dry: 3 Winter Boating Tips March 17, 2017

Stay Warm & Dry: 3 Winter Boating Tips, Berkeley, California

If you simply cannot wait for warm weather to start boating, you should take a few precautions. Cruising in the winter is a different experience from summertime boat and yacht fun, as the crew at Compass Rose Yacht Charters will attest. The Berkeley, CA, charter business has a few tips to keep in mind for a safe wintertime journey.

Check Weather Conditions

boatingFind out current weather conditions before heading out. Strong ocean currents in combination with heavy wind and rain make boating difficult and dangerous. Stay safe on shore until conditions subside to get the most from your charter boat or yacht experience.

Wear the Right Gear

Purchase a float-coat if you do not already have one. The foam padding provides extra warmth necessary for wintertime boating. Bring extra clothes, hats, scarves, and gloves, as well as hand warmers. You’ll be happy to have them if you get wet, as they will prevent hypothermia. Pack ski goggles, too, as they provide protection from winter wind to keep your eyes from tearing up.

Stay Close to Shore

Stay within range of the shoreline in the event of a sudden change in weather. The weather at sea is usually different from on shore, and dealing with changes in frigid temperatures can change your cruise from a fun experience to a scary situation.

If you’re going boating this winter, Compass Rose Yacht Charters will take every measure to make it a fun, safe time for everyone. The team specializes in private events and provides an impressive fleet of boats and yachts to accommodate the size of your party. Whether planning a wedding, ash scattering, corporate party, or another special event, count on the premier charter service to provide an unforgettable experience. Call them at (510) 523-9500 to plan your event, or visit their website to learn more about food menu options and other services.
