Racing Gear

Sailboat Racing is one of the most intensive outdoor / water 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 have high demand for the right sailing garment under all the conditions they must endure; often, their tasks finish 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 this does not mean that they are in a comfort zone, since the racer needs to be "on deck" at all times and finishing tasks that require energy and speed in order to cross the finish line ahead of the fleet. 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.
