What grit should I use when painting gel coat

I've searched and can't get a clear answer. I am painting the interior of our trillium and have an orbital sander with 400 grit. Is that going to give the primer enough grip?

If 400 is what you have, it should be fine. No courser that 320 or you could leave scratches that will show thru the primer and paint.
