Before you book your open daysail in Cape Cod or private charter in Annapolis, you may have a few questions about sailing aboard The Liberté. We aim to make it as easy as possible for guests to plan their event and enjoy the beautiful waters this summer, so be sure to read the answers to three FAQs about sailing on The Liberté!
What If It Is Raining?
Unfortunately, the weather isn’t always on our side, and a sailing event can be impacted by rain or storms. We will make the final call, but if it isn’t raining too hard and the water is not dangerous, guests who book private charters have the option to continue with the sail or reschedule (depending on availability.) For those who don’t mind a little rain, we do offer jackets to keep you dry. However, in the event of a storm or inclement weather that is too dangerous to sail in, we will have to cancel a public sail.
What Is The Food Policy?
The Liberté allows guests to bring their own food- however, we ask that guests avoid bringing ceramic or glass to avoid any dangerous broken bowls or plates during the sail. It is also best to pack solid foods that are light and easy to carry, as you never know how strong the winds and waves will be that day. As for private charters, we offer a catering menu in Annapolis and work with some fine food purveyors in Cape Cod, and serve everything from appetizers to full dinners. You also have the option to bring your own food, use your own caterer, or have a potluck. The Liberté also has a full beverage bar onboard!
What If I Get Seasick?
While many people enjoy sailing on the open water, others may find that they don’t have as much fun on boats due to seasickness. If you have experienced seasickness, or motion sickness, before, you can prepare before your trip aboard The Liberté to make the experience much more enjoyable! It’s very important to stay hydrated the day of your sail, as dehydration can exacerbate the symptoms of seasickness. If you’ve been seasick before, you may know which foods to stay away from, but if not, it’s best to stick to snacks like fruit and crackers to settle your stomach. You can also take medication to prevent seasickness, or eat a chewable tablet or hard candy made with ginger. Ginger is one of the best remedies for nausea and is great for settling an upset stomach. For guests who do get motion sickness on the boat, we have motion sickness wristbands on hand to help alleviate nausea. We also provide a natural medical oil that can help with seasickness.
