Winter thoughts and plans

Now is the time of year when, apart from those lucky enough to live really locally, sailing people have their boat nicely tucked away and put to bed for the winter. The all-over cover is on, the outboard is stored indoors and there is nothing to be done now until fitting out time again in the spring.

So naturally, the sailor’s thoughts turn to the plans for the next season and even more naturally, following on from this, what will they need to buy for the next season. Even better of course, what sailing clothing and kit can they ask to be given at Christmas?

There are usually some new items of equipment and kit that are the ‘must have’ for the keen boating person. Not only technical developments such as new radios and electronic gizmos, but sailing clothing are continually developing as well.All the big names like Musto, Henri Lloyd and Gill sailing are researching into the uses of their clothes and what materials and designs are best going to meet the needs of the boating world.

All the newest sailing clothes can be found in Scotts of Langholm where the keen boats person can browse and compare all the useful sailing clothing.During the long dark evenings of winter, when you cannot get out on the water, the next best thing is to think about it, remember the season just finished and plan the next one, with all the kit and sailing clothing you will need.
