Always check before sailing:

Weather forecast

Tide - make a note - is it springs or neaps?

Fuel - how much is on board?

Is there reserve fuel?

Engine - a daily check is essential (see below).

On deck - make sure all gear is secure.

Sails and rigging - a quick look aloft and on deck.

Below decks - galley secured, hatches and ports shut, no loose gear around.

(Have you looked?) Dinghy - well secured on deck, or if towing, check the tow.

Further planning for a longer trip Make sure someone ashore knows where you are heading.

The Safety Identification Scheme means that, if you need help, the Coastguard knows what your boat looks like.

Information available from CG.

Have you checked your charts? You wouldn't be the first person to find an important chart missing.

Do you have an up-to-date almanac aboard? The tide - is it critical anywhere, e.g. passing round a headland or entering harbour? If you are delayed, can you get into your destination harbour after dark? In an emergency, or if unexpected bad weather occurs, are there any alternative harbours or anchorages on the way? Your crew - do you know their strength and experience? Could they cope with unexpected bad weather?


Always needed - even if the engine was running well yesterday. Before starting Engine compartment. Take a quick look - bilge clear, no oil or water leaks, no loose wires, belts OK. Raw water inlet. Valve open, strainer clear.

Fuel filter.

With a transparent filter check for water or dirt.

Drain off if needed. Engine oil level. Check with dipstick.

Do not overfill. Starting Switch over to starting battery.

Start the engine with the gearbox in neutral, and run at medium revs to warm up.

Cooling water - is it running from exhaust? Batteries charging, correct oil pressure.

Look at the instrument panel. While running Check the stern gland periodically for leaks.

Tighten grease filler (if fitted) as needed

Gearbox oil Check periodically when the engine is running and warm.

Remember to top up with gearbox oil, not engine oil.
