How to look undeniably chic out on the water during the racing regatta

Thanks to the America’s Cup, boating culture has come to the fore in a big way. After all, there’s nothing like spending a beautiful, bluebird day out on the water, particularly when the entertainment is high-speed, high-stakes yacht racing. And given that things are really only just starting to heat up in the America’s Cup arena, and there are many more opportunities for boat days on the horizon, we thought it high time we rounded up all the essentials to ensure any boating adventure is a success.

The best way to avoid a faux pas on the water is to keep things simple, sleek and elegant. From practical considerations to a touch of necessary glamour, these are the essential pieces you should have on hand before stepping foot on a boat.
