What's in yours?

Extended cruise or ocean passages require some consideration about the contents of your emergency grab bag.

The RYA recommends it be brightly coloured, easily stowed, floatable for 30 min when fully packed, attachable to an inflated raft and tabbed with a list, in order of priority, of the necessary items it should contain. 

RORC Regulations specify flares, EVDS (electronic visual distress signal), a waterproof EPIRB/PLB, a handheld VHF & GPS, drinking water, high energy food, torch, spare batteries, strobe light, whistle, spare spectacles, sun glasses, sun protection, lip salve, medication, antibiotics, seasickness tablets, fishing kit, passport, credit cards, money, keys, mobile phone, satellite phone, ship’s papers & insurance documents.
