Training at a sailing camp can include a lot of practical information -- but it's not all about how to sail. Boat maintenance is also an important aspect of your education. Here's a quick and easy fix for any scratches and scrapes that may occur to your hull while sailing: nail varnish. Keep a bottle with you in your kit bag or on deck for every excursion. If your hull gets scratched, quickly dry off the area and varnish with the polish. This will avoid wood damage and paint peeling until you have the opportunity to properly repaint (or whatever repair may be necessary.)
