Hot Gear for Summer Sailing

We don’t just have the coolest sails on the water, we’ve got some of the coolest gear, too. Here are some of our team’s go-to recommendations for hot summer sailing.

1. Quantum Racing Gear

Support for your favorite 52 Super Series team! And there’s no better way to show your team spirit than with a new Vortex long-sleeve tech shirt and a matching Vortex trucker hat or a Quantum Racing Water Bottle and a Quantum Racing Super Series belt. The pros wear Quantum, and so can you.

2. Regatta Awning 

Racing in the summer can occasionally mean an AP flag as the breeze fills in. Wait out those on-course postponements under shade with a custom regatta awning. These ultra-light, ultra-compact, and ultra-essential boom tents provide critical shade to keep your crew cool, rested, and ready for action. Custom built to fit your boat. Contact a loft to place your order.

3. Backpack

Heading on the road for a championship regatta or back to travelling for work? The Dakine Campus 33L backpack is the perfect companion to haul your essentials.  It’ll swallow most 17” laptops and still has plenty of room for sailing gloves, spray top, or your splicing tools. Easy access and stowability to fit under the seat in front of you make this your go-to backpack for travel to or from any event. Need something more compact? Try the Dakine Campus 25L.

4. Spinlock Deckvest

Stay safe this summer with our new selection of personal flotation devices from Spinlock. Whether you’re cruising in the Deckvest or racing in the low profile Foil or Wing PFD, you’ll be secured in the right gear and ready for action.

5. Headsail Cover

Furled headsails need protection and our custom jib sock is the perfect solution. Designed to be hoisted over top a furled headsail to protect and secure your sails. An essential bit of kit for performance racer cruisers and one-design sailors who keep their sails rigged and furled. Length, features, or custom colors, each cover is individually spec’d and built to suit your needs custom fit your boat. Contact a loft to place your order.
