Layering for inshore sailing
Drenched by spray. Battered by strong coastal winds. Your environment can stop you performing at your best. That’s why the outer layer in the 3-Layer System is highly protective. The outer layer safeguards you against the weather while keeping you visible. Garments featuring GORE-TEX® supply the ultimate in elemental protection whilst being supremely breathable - a particular benefit to highly active sailors.
Versatile, lightweight and packable. The mid-layer builds on the temperature regulation of your base and protects you from the elements. This means it can also be worn as an outer layer on fairer days.
The foundation of your kit. An effective base layer should trap air next to the skin, minimising the loss of body heat. Perspiration also transmits heat up to thirty times faster than air. That’s why a base layer needs to be breathable, wicking and fast-drying. Opt for a technical, UV-treated garment on sunnier days at sea.
Perform at your best with the right tools for the job. Alongside your layers, you need a well-stocked kit bag of sailing essentials to maximise your inshore sailing experience. Pick up a Waterproof Dry Pack or a Waterproof Backpack to keep your gear safe and dry while on deck, and don’t forget essential headgear, footwear and accessories.
Musto’s pioneering 3-Layer System has greatly enhanced the performance of inshore sailing athletes. Breathability, warmth and weatherproofing are the ultimate combination for optimal comfort. Whether they’re taking part in America’s Cup or Cowes Round the Island Race, tests have shown that when sailors are protected, they’re focused.
