Sailing Clothes

Sailing clothing is specially designed to provide comfort, protection, and functionality while out on the water. Whether it's for leisurely cruising, competitive racing, or offshore adventures, sailing clothing plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety and performance of sailors in various weather conditions.

To make your shopping experience easier, we've added handy colour and size filters across all the relevant categories.

Sailing Jackets:

Sailing jackets are designed to keep you warm, dry and protected no matter what the weather throws at you, whether that be wind, rain, spray or waves. Many leading sailing jackets such as Gill sailing jackets are constructed from three layer fabrics that offer exceptional water repellance. We stock a huge range of sailing jackets, including men's sailing jackets and women's sailing jackets.

Sailing Trousers:

Sailing trousers are an extremely useful purchase as they not only possess the same warmth and waterproof benefits as sailing jackets, but typically have reinforcement in high impact areas such as knees and rear, providing excellent protection. Many leading brands, such as Gill sailing trousers also include more handy features, such as hand warmer pockets for extra warmth. As with sailing jackets, we stock an excellent range of men's sailing trousers and women's sailing trousers. It's also worth noting that if you purchase a sailing jacket and a pair of sailing trousers together, you can save some money - check out our sailing suits and save today!

Sailing Shorts:

If you're sailing in warmer climates, it may be worth ditching the sailing trousers and opting for a pair of sailing shorts instead! Many men's sailing shorts and women's sailing shorts offer the same rear protection found on sailing trousers. Furthermore, the fabric used on certain sailing shorts is fast-drying and stretchy for extra comfort.

Sailing Polos & T-Shirts:

Many sailing polo shirts differ from normal polo's as they offer UV protection, keeping you protected from the sun (this protection does vary from product to product). Within our excellent offering of sailing polos and t-shirts, you'll also find more casual t-shirts that look great on and off the boat.

Jumpers & Fleeces:

When the temperatures fall and it gets a bit chilly, jumpers and fleeces will keep you warm! We stock a wide range of men's jumpers & fleeces and women's jumpers & fleeces in pretty much every colour you can think of, and in a huge range of sizes from X-Small to XXX-Large - explore the range today.

Sailing Gilets:

Sailing gilets are super-useful when it's too warm for a jumper, but too cold without one. In addition, men's sailing gilets and women's sailing gilets are extremely versatile as they can be worn over a single layer, or multiple layers.


Wetsuits are one of our most popular items of sailing clothing, and it's not hard to see why. These specialised suits offer excellent warmth and protection for those participating in watersports. From 2mm Gill wetsuits to warmer 3mm Typhoon wetsuits, there's a wide range of choice - so whether you need a men's wetsuit, women's wetsuit or junior wetsuit, look no further.

Rash Vests:

Rash vests offer excellent skin protection, whether that be from the sun or marine life such as jellyfish and coral. In addition, rash vests are super versatile as they can be worn on their own, or as a baselayer under wetsuits or other sports gear. We supply a wide range of rash vests, from junior rash vests to men's rash vests and women's rash vests.

Sailing Footwear:

Our hand-chosen range of deck shoes and sailing boots not only look great, but offer superb comfort and protection too, with their grippy soles providing vital traction, even in wet conditions.

Deck Shoes:
Originally created to prevent sailors from slipping on decks, boat shoes have quickly become a fashion staple on dry land, owing to their supreme style and comfort. Our hand chosen range of men's deck shoes and women's deck shoes come in a huge variety of colours and styles, so there's something for everyone! 

Sailing Boots:
We stock an excellent range of sailing boots from leading brands including Dubarry, Gill, Orca Bay and Maindeck - catering for every budget, from entry level options including Gill's Tall Yachting Boots, to our best-selling Dubarry Ultima Sailing Boots, built to withstand the worst conditions nature can throw at you.

Sailing Bags:

We stock an extremely diverse range of sailing luggage options - ranging from waterproof device cases perfect for keeping your electronics dry whilst out on the water, to sailing holdalls packed with handy space-saving compartments, great for any long trips away. If you're looking for a hybrid of the two, make sure you purchase a dry bag. These versatile bags are perfect for keeping any clothing and valuables dry, plus can easily be taken out on your paddle board, kayak or inflatable dinghy.

Clothing Accessories:

Whether you're looking to keep your eyes protected with a pair of floating sunglasses, your hands with a pair of sailing gloves, or even your knees with some knee pads, our wide range of clothing accessories provide the finishing touch to any sailing clothing wardrobe.

Furthermore, thanks to our stylish range of beanies, your style won't suffer when the temperatures fall. We've even catered for your feet too, with a superb offering of sailing socks
