We’ve all been there; Father’s Day is coming up, we’re in the supermarket and we can’t quite bring ourselves to get a World’s Best Dad mug (again) so we opt for a bottle of wine or some artisan beer. But it’s a bit of a cop out isn’t it? This year, Performance Sailing Shop is here with a round up of the best Father’s Day gifts for sailing dads, ones that will make you look thoughtful and considerate.


And what’s more as we’re giving away an eGiftCard with every order (worth £5 or £10 depending on what you’re ordering), then you can treat yourself too, but ssshhh, don’t tell dad!


For cruising sailors


If your dad’s a cruising sailor then the new Henri Lloyd Freedom jacket would be a great choice. It offers serious offshore and coastal protection and has all the features of a jacket with a much higher price tag, like an Optivision Hood and Henri Lloyd Photo-Luminescent Reflectors. If you’re really feeling generous, we’ve got matching hi-fits too.


Upgrade his lifejacket


Is it time your dad upgraded his lifejacket?  

The Crewfit Sport from Crewsaver is an extremely comfortable lifejacket designed using Crewsaver’s Fusion 3D technology and available in a range of great colours (we love the bright blue). It’s so comfortable he might even forget he’s wearing it.


Update his look 


The adidas JB01 deck shoes are right on trend. Ditch ‘dad’ style for an up-to-date look. These would make a great gift,and they’d look great with the blue Crewfit Sport too. 

Our range of t-shirts from Henri Lloyd and Musto are classics that always go down well. Pick from a Musto Pique Polo or a Henri Lloyd Fast-dri t-shirt, perfect for summer sailing. 


Get him kitted out


Does your dad’s kit bag date from the first Whitbread Round the World Race? (1973, in case you were wondering). If so, then the Henri Lloyd Essential Crew-pac holdall would make a great gift. It’s perfect for sailing and weekend getaways alike. 




Now the evenings are getting longer, treat him to a Henri Lloyd fleece. It’ll keep him cosy on summer evenings on deck or enjoying a drink shore side. And who doesn’t love a bear hug from their dad in a cosy jumper?!


Don't panic!


If you’re still not sure what to get, or if you’ve left it so late that you fear the supermarket is your only option, then don’t worry, get him an eGiftCard and we’ll email it to his inbox instantly. He can then choose himself the perfect gift from our range of sailing kit from adidas, Crewsaver, Henri Lloyd, Musto and Rooster.

And you can relax!
