I’ve pretty much given up make-up on board. At the suggestion of an experienced sailing friend, when underway I don’t wear my rings and only wear small post earrings. When we drop the hook, I get out my earrings, rings and bracelets. When “dressing up” means a clean shirt and shorts not stained with boat grime, there just isn’t a lot of energy put into bling.
In addition, the sand in the Bahamas convinced us not to wear our boat shoes aboard when at anchor. I do wear my sailing sandals on deck when we are underway off shore, because I think they provide better traction and protect my toes a bit.
In Luperon, Margie makes “barefoot sandals” – I call them footbling. They make me smile.
