How to select the proper spare parts kit for your next trip.

Preparing the equipment well ahead of a race or a sailing trip-voyage is something that every wise sailor (experienced or not) should do religiously. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing for sure what will break or blow out from the deck when least expected. However, having just enough replacement equipment on board for at least the most vulnerable parts, assures that when everything goes south, the risk of suffering major damage is greatly reduced.

Even though the number of spares that a boat carries will vary depending on the sailing style and preferences of each boat owner, there are some items that should never be missed on a spares kit. At Mauri Pro, we have developed a list of essentials that every sailor, regardless of the type of sailing they do, should have on their boat.
