If you've signed on for an offshore passage with us, please complete the forms below. This information will remain strictly confidential and will be destroyed at the completion of your passage. It is however imperative that we have all of this on file for customs clearance and in the unlikely case of an emergency. Click the buttons below for the relevant packing lists. A printable PDF will pop up in a new browser tab. Thanks!
Note that your passport must be valid at least six months AFTER your passage is scheduled to be over. Most foreign countries require this and will not let you enter otherwise. So please make sure you passport is valid and within these dates. You also must bring a copy of your passport to the boat, or email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend using the smartphone app 'TurboScan' to do this.
On any offshore passage, it's of utmost importance that the skipper know exactly what each crew members medical issues are, however minor. Understandably, some people can get uncomfortable sharing some of this private information. Unfortunately, for those of you sailing with us, you just gotta do it.
Of course, your medical information remains confidential and will not, under any circumstances, be shared with the crew. We keep this on file onboard the boat in the portable medical kit, and once the passage is complete, you'll receive it back or we'll destroy it. In the case of a real emergency, it can quite literally save your life.
For those of you just curious about what kinds of questions to ask if you're sailing your own boat, feel free to have a look at the form below, and copy it word for word if you like! For those of you sailing with us, please complete the form and submit before the deadline you were emailed.
Nervous now after that? Don't be! It's standard operating procedure on any well-run oceangoing boat, especially with crew who don't know each other as close friends or family. Plus, the people who prepare the best, often have the least amount of sea stories (and I mean that in a good way!). Thanks for taking the time to complete this medical form.
Food Preferences & Allergies
Please complete the form below to give us some help on provisioning. We can't promise the world to everyone, and we're not running a restaurant! But, both Mia and I eat very healthy and are very conscious of what we do and don't eat, so we're happy to respect the preferences of our crew as well. In general, you can be assured of a varied and healthy menu on Isbjorn! Thanks for helping us!
