Summer Sailing Clothing

As summer has finally arrived here in the UK we thought we would show you our summer sailing clothing top picks.


Protecting yourself from the elements whilst on the water is essential, not only for your comfort but also for your performance if racing. 


Here at Sailing Chandlery we stock a wide range of summer sailing clothing items from Zhik, Gill and Rooster. Each have their own individual benefits but we are bringing you our top picks.

Summer Sailing Clothing Top Picks

We are breaking our summer sailing clothing guide down from head to toe.

Sailing Headwear

They say your head temperature is important, whether you're trying to keep warm in the colder months, or trying to keep cool on those warmer days.


Most people tend to head out on the water for extended periods of time, whether you are racing or off for a social cruise. Keeping the sun off your head in the summer will save you a headache the next day for sure.


At Sailing Chandlery we stock sailing caps, visors and a broad brimmed hat. View all of our sailing hats.


Below are three of the most popular for this years summer sailing clothing top picks.

Sailing Rash Vests

A simple and effective way to cover your body and keep the sun off. All of our rash vests and UPF50+ rated.


We offer rash vests in short and long sleeve versions with our Zhik options being made from Repreve, an eco friendly material.


Rash vests are an excellent versatile bit of sailing clothing for your kit bag. They can be worn by themselves on warmer days, and also underneath your wetsuit on the colder days.

Sailing Gloves

No summer sailing clothing guide would be complete without covering sailing gloves. On warmer days you want sailing gloves that'll protect your hands but are also lightweight so your hands don't get too hot.

Summer Sailing Wetsuits

A firm summer sailing clothing favourite here at Sailing Chandlery, the new Zhik Microfleece X wetsuit. Made from Yulex rubber this is a fantastic new top of the range wetsuit and top combo that'll keep you warm, protected and comfortable for those longer summer days on the water.

Sailing Footwear

In warmer months you want sailing footwear that protects your feet but also allows them to stay cool.


We love these three options below which will be the perfect addition to your summer sailing clothing and kit bag.
