Do I need sailing boots? Where can I buy them from? There is a chance that your feet will get wet whilst sailing so we recommend you bring a spare pair of trainers that you don’t mind getting wet. You can invest in a pair of special sailing boots (or clean garden wellies) which cost from around £25, we would advise this if you are doing a long offshore passage or sailing during the winter months. If you do wish to buy some sailing boots, try your local yacht chandlery or visit an online marine store.
