Default Got the boat part covered. Now about you...

1. Make sure you get plenty of sunscreen on. If you or someone in the boat has long hair, remember at speed it exposes the upper part of your forehead. Wear a hat, good shirt.
2. Anything you want to keep, don't let it blow out of the boat. Place stuff where the wind can't get to it.
3. If you're boating in rough water, sometimes it creates a need or want to stand up for better visibility. But take a break every so often. Your legs are getting a serious workout!
4. Even if your vision is good, trying to spot a marker is taxing. Grab a monocular if you can. Ask your navigator to help, too.
5. Lastly, wave at other boaters, and lend them a hand at the dock.
