    Standard items: Parallell rule - they told us to get the 15" size but I wish I had got much longer ones, dividers, scientific calculator, compass, pens, pencils (HB and 2B for charts), paper
    I wouldn't bother getting your stuff for sea until you know where it is you will roughly be going. If you haven't already got one, a digital watch for sea is always a bonus but not a cheap knock off, one that keeps good time (for taking fixes and gyro errors) - my friend learned this from experience.
