OUTER LAYER

Coastal and channel sailors alike need highly weatherproof outer layers. Highly protective, the outer layer safeguards you against the weather while keeping you visible. Garments featuring GORE-TEX® supply the ultimate in breathable, all-weather protection. For a cost-efficient alternative, Musto’s BR1 garments offer a comparable level of waterproof protection and breathability.

MIDDLE LAYER

When temperatures fall, reach for your mid-layer. Designed to be warm, protective and light, these packable pieces can be stowed in your kit bag ready for when you need them. Look to garments featuring PrimaLoft® and Arctec for packable insulation. An essential layer for day sailors in any climate.

BASE LAYER

The base layer is the groundwork other layers build upon. Moisture wicking and fast-drying, this layer’s main role is to keep you dry and comfortable. Merino wool is an ideal fabric for warmth on fresher days. UPF treated fabrics can be worn without layers on fair to sunny days around the coast.

ACCESSORIES

Coastal sailing can barrage different weather conditions over a few short days, even at the height of Summer. So it is essential you pack the right kit for any job. The right accessories will help keep your extremities comfortable and dry so you can sail with the weather and not against it.
