Packing list for an overnight sailing trip

This list has started as a packing list for a week-long summer vacation in Buzzards Buy, so it is somewhat more involved than needed for a quick overnight, but it's a good starting point. Things it doesn't cover, but the actual packing list should: food; drinks; clothing; entertainment (books/games/toys/music); first aid kit/medicine. For trips with potentially more demanding sailing one should also start thinking about some safety equipment, starting with a personal life vest.
