New for 2018, the Gill Race Synchro Buoyancy Aid has a snug fit for maximum comfort next to the skin. A hardwearing outer fabric has been combined with cleverly designed soft foam panels to offer optimum freedom of movement, for a sailing outfit that performs alongside you whilst racing.
Tested and certified to meet safety standards, Gill also test their own products in the lab and on water to ensure protection alongside comfort. Added reflective panels help to increase visibility regardless of light and weather conditions, making this personal floatation device an essential part of any sailor’s racing wardrobe.
With added thermal warmth to the back and quick-drying fabric to the front you’ll be kept both warm and dry in this latest technology, performance fit, thermal, neoprene sailing top.
Super-stretchy fabric to the shoulders, side of the body and arms allow for maximum movement while sealed seams and a high neck reduces the chance of water getting in. For a winning combination, wear with the Race FireCell Skiff Suit.
Our performance focussed Race Series of sailing clothing is expertly designed for competitive sailing. The Race FireCell Skiff Suit is our most technologically advanced neoprene wetsuit yet, using latest FireCell technology which traps air in its thermal pockets.
The stretchy neck opening allows for easy on/off, no need for a zip, and the quick-drying fabric on the shoulders and back keeps you comfortable in all conditions. There are ThermoGrid zones in the chest and legs for extra insulation and the seat and knees are reinforced. Compatible with, but doesn’t have to be worn with, the Race Long Sleeve Top.
The Gill Race Collection has been designed, tested and race proven for use in warmer conditions where weight, performance and protection can be the key to success. Made using a super-soft waterproof softshell fabric with a thermal fleece lining and water repellent finish. A drawcord hem and front zipper storm guard provide protection from wind and water.
With 35 litres of storage space, our new season Race Team Backpack has been carefully crafted using waterproof PVC tarpaulin to protect all your essentials. Different compartments, including a large front pocket, make your belongings easily accessible whilst welded seams add for a watertight seal.
Padded and breathable, this backpack offers a comfortable fit, with a new stylish design to keep your sailing wardrobe fresh, making it the perfect, practical choice for any sailor, practiced or novice.
No matter the weather conditions, the Gill 30 Litre Race Team Bag will help to ensure your clean clothing and belongings stay dry whilst you concentrate on winning the race. Designed with welded seams and a roll-down closure, the bag becomes watertight so you can have peace of mind you’ll return to your belongings as you left them.
External attachments are available to secure bag wherever you like and the puncture resistant PVC means your bag will be safe, even in the middle of all the action.
When it comes to performance sailing footwear, it doesn’t come better than our new Race Trainers. Part of our technical Race Series, they offer optimum impact protection with their cushioned insoles and moulded toes; they drain water just as quickly as it comes in (if you don’t believe us, take a look at the video below) and they’re lightweight, so you’ll almost forget you’re wearing them.
But the real advantage of these race shoes over others is their super-grippy sole, which has 80% contact with the deck.
