Cruising Gear

Cruising on a sailboat is one of the most intensive outdoor activities one can do. The permanent interaction with the elements creates the need of wear a reliable "shell" that keep the crew protected from the cold, water, heat and abrasion. Racing sailors often have their tasks finished by the end of the day, with few exceptions like the Volvo Ocean Race or Vendee Globe as well as any other offshore racing sailors; but the cruiser, even short term, is an individual that usually lacks the help of a numerous crew, making every duty more time and energy consumer. That is why one of the most important elements to carry on board a sailboat is the right clothing. This will equal to protection from cold, wind and water and breathability and lightweight for the warm days.
