Christmas is plain sailing with our top gift ideas for the sailor in your life!

 

We’ve got something for everyone, from casual weekend sailors to hardcore boaters out in all weathers. Here are some of the things that we’d like to see peeking out of our stockings on Christmas morning!

 

Give them a fighting chance of replicating Team Land Rover BAR’s sailing successes with the adidas GR02 Grinder sailing shoes as worn by the team. Would-be racers and America’s Cup fans will love these lightweight deck shoes with tyre-tread-like outsole and full drainage system to ensure optimum performance in wet, slippery conditions.

 

 

As an alternative, get them this year’s hottest deck shoes, the adidas JB01’s. In stand-out Running White colour-way, these athletic-style deck shoes are super comfortable with a breathable mesh upper and grippy outsole. Now just £49.95 this is ultra cool kit at a fantastic price.

 

 

Treat your crew; upgrade your lifejackets with the latest in Fusion 3D technology from Crewsaver. The Crewfit 165N Sport features Crewsaver’s unique bladder design with peninsular chin support to keep your airway well clear of the water, whatever the conditions.

 

 

For the serious sailor, the Henri Lloyd Freedom Jacket is perfect. Packed full of features, including the Optivision hood for increased peripheral vision, high cut collar with marl fleece lining and Photo-Luminescent Reflectors that absorb UV light by day and release it at night making you safer in the dark, this jacket is clever, giving you plenty of bang for your buck. 

 

 

For coastal sailors Musto’s BR1 Channel Jacket would make a great gift. Waterproof and breathable, it gives you complete protection from the elements. Prismatic reflectors on the jacket’s shoulders and sleeves keep you visible even in low light.

 

 

If you’re splashing out and treating the sailor in your life to a set of jacket and hi-fits then the Rooster Pro Coastal range would be a good choice. Ideal for keelboat, sports boat, yacht sailors or RIB crew, this jacket and hi-fits can be worn over the top of normal clothes, or as an extra layer over sailing kit. Features on the jacket include roll-away fluorescent peaked hood, practical chest pockets with waterproof zips, double cuffs and fleece-lined hand warmer pockets with drainage holes. The hi-fits have Cordura knees and seat, making them hardwearing.
