Our Top 5 Items for Colder Weather Sailing

If you're heading out onto the water over the colder UK months then you're going to need protection against the cold, and you might get lucky with a little bit of sunshine.

It's important to make sure you're prepared for the conditions, whatever they may throw at you.

Here are our top 5 items we recommend for sailing in the colder weather.

1) Zhik G2 Long Finger Sailing Gloves

The feedback from sailors on these gloves has been amazing.

A long fingered, hard wearing and most importantly warm sailing glove which you can use all year round.

  • Offset panelling in key areas to eliminate traditional pressure points caused by seams
