Foul Weather Gear Review: NeilPryde Raceline Spray Top

Monday, February 17, 2014

NeilPryde Raceline Spray Top

After spending some time on the water testing out the NeilPryde Raceline Spray Top, our team is thoroughly impressed. This is the ideal piece of gear for any serious sailor when push comes to shove in foul weather. We especially love how the Raceline Spray Top meets at the crossroads of precision functionality, and unbelievable comfort. The super sleek and breathable X Shell fabric, the comfort seals on the cuffs, and the adjustable neoprene waistband round out this fantastic piece of race-wear.
Other great features include:

  • 100% waterproof.
  • Innovative neck design.
  • Fully taped seams.
  • Dartex double seal cuff system.

New: Gill Race Waterproof Sailing Smock of the Gill Race Collection

Monday, February 10, 2014

We’re excited to announce … we’re now offering one of the newest sailing jackets in the market. The
Gill Race Waterproof Smock, part of the Gill Race Collection is now available at Sailing Pro Shop. We test drove it and you better hurry up and get yours before we keep them all for ourselves (if only this jacket was available in multiple colors).

Gill designed and rigorously tested this performance cut, nautical masterpiece for use in warmer conditions … the best conditions (in our opinion). Not only is this sailing smock lightweight and extremely breathable, but it’s water and windproof. These kinds of combinations don’t come along everyday. With its sleek graphite and silver color scheme, this piece of sailing clothing is hard to resist.

Some other notable features include:

- Watertight, zipper closing PU neck seal with unique Velcro adjustment for the inner gusset.
- Retractable cuff adjusters for PU sleeve cuffs create a waterproof seal.
- Back zip pockets to keep all your essentials safe without being cumbersome.
