Yacht Week Greece: Packing Essentials

Yikes.  This is a tough one. Opt for a foldable duffel bag

Lets start with what NOT to pack

  1. No straightners, blow dryers or curlers.  I know, WHAT?  But you will only have shore power the first night then not again until the last, so there is no way to plug anything into outlets
  2. No jeans, long pants, cover-ups, blazers, or blankets.  It is HOT hot hot.. even at night.
  3. Running sneakers/work out clothes. Lets get real.

What to definitely bring:

  • Soap/shampoo/conditioner/face wash/razor – but keep in mind you might be bathing in the Mediterranean instead of in a shower, as the bathrooms on board get very filthy very quickly
  • Sunblock.  A lot of it.
  • Body lotion
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Nail polish
  • Sunglasses
  • Toothbrush, floss, paste
  • Make up bag with waterproof mascara, bronzer, blush
  • At least 5 “going out” outfits.  These can be flowy dresses or tight skirts with bandeaus, but the clubs are fancy and you will want to get dressed up. I suggest collaborating with the girls you’re going with ahead of time and make a share all rule.
  • Bathing suits – bring enough options, you’ll be living out of them
  • One pair of platform heels for the clubs – go with platforms, it’s incredibly difficult to hop from boat to boat in heels.
  • Two-three light weight cover ups
  • Clutch for night time
  • Clean pillow case
  • Extra towel
  • Contact case, extra contacts, solution
  • Meds: Dramamine, prescriptions, aspirin, tums, first aid kit, 5 hour energy
  • At least 500 euros and a debit card, 800 euros for fellas
