On formal evenings women usually wear cocktail dresses or gown and men wear business suits or tuxedos. For informal nights, dresses or pantsuits for women and jackets (tie optional) for men. Confortable, relaxed clothing is fine for casual; however, t-shirts, jeans and shorts are not allowed in the dining room.

Hi There
Don't worry too much about the clothes. I took a no sleeve, short, black cocktail dress and two different shawls for formal nights --- and didn't feel at all out of place.
Casual is anything except T-shirts, shorts, jeans. I wore a red cotton dress one night, a skirt and blouse another night etc. Clothes were much easier than I expected ( and had worried about) , I took far too much and lived in shorts, bathing suit and a shirt every day!
Have a great time.

Wow, Debbie ...

You are certainly starting at or near the top.

Think "country club" and you will be Just Fine. Friday night at the club for dinner with friends (informal), wedding at the club (formal) and so on.

Happy sails !!!
