Ocean Race Marine Sleeping Bag + fleece Pillow from Gauss as recommended for the Clipper race.
In good condition: used for Legs 7&8 of the 15/16 Clipper Race and couldn't have done without it. Bag is a Size Large: I had ample room and I'm 5ft 11.
Amazingly warm and comfortable, the bag comes with a removable fleece liner so you can adjust your temperature to suit. Both the outer layer & inner liner have a waterproof layer meaning that this bag is always warm and snug to get into after a long cold watch. Pillow is waterproof on one side and then fleece lined on the other - this was by far the best luxury I took on the race: a proper pillow makes all the difference.
Comes complete with outer bag that can fit pillow & bag within it. Some corrosion on the zips of the outer bag (as you'd expect from being on a Clipper yacht!).
Designed for deep ocean sailing and yacht racing be that the Southern Ocean, North Atlantic or the Western Approaches to the English Channel the Original Ocean Sleepwear sleeping bag has a waterproof breathable outer shell that protects 2 warm fibre-pile insulating layers. Fibre-pile is the best performing insulation to have wet at sea, it is virtually as warm wet as it is dry and dries quickly. The bag has strong central "burstable" zips for quick entry and exit.
Right size and shape for sailing: This waterproof marine sleeping bag has an extra generously cut “mummy“ shape with plenty of space at the feet, knees and shoulders to make it possible to find a comfortable sleeping position even in a big sea! While the Volvo Ocean Race bag is the biggest, this is the more practical design when space is limited and transport to and from boats is a factor.
Durable outer shell: Made from 4oz Exeat Fabric providing a tough waterproof and breathable barrier, treated with a breathable fluorocarbon coating and fully tape-sealed to prevent wicking through stitch holes and provided with a full length flap to prevent water ingress through the zip. The outer shell zips directly onto the insulation layers so the bags work as one unit, without movement or cold spots.
Full-length “burstable“ zips: YKK No10 coil zips for their strength and reliability, with non-lock zippers and layers designed to work together means rapid entry and exit, no tangled layers. The zips, protected by a storm flap on the outer shell, can be opened both top and bottom to let your feet breathe.
2 Thick Fibre Pile Insulation Layers: 10mm Dense Weave fibre pile luxuriously warm to the touch. Fibre pile stays warm when wet and is hydrophilic, it does not absorb water. It resists mildew and is washable at 40°C. Fibre-pile makes the perfect ocean going insulation material.
Removable Pillow Pocket: Comfortable poly-cotton pillowcase, can easily be removed, washed and dried, stopping the build up of salt from your wet hair. Spare clothes can be stuffed inside form the pillow itself.
Rolling strap: Making it easy to keep the bag rolled up when it“s not being slept in.
Hanging strap: At the foot is for securing the bag when it is aired on deck.
2 Storage sacs: One large red for the whole system, and one small to store the inner bag when not in use, of course both stuff sacks make useful storage when not in use!

Waterproof rectangular 4-layer sleeping bag with stuffsack. Used in the 15/16 race and only for the colder legs, ie 2, 3, parts of leg 4 and leg 6.
This is really comfy and will keep you nice and warm! I'm 170 cm (5'7) and like to snuggle up properly when I sleep, and this sleeping bag was perfect for that. Best kit ever!
The colour is Royal Blue and size is 2 m (6'6) x 1 m (3'3), and in good condition. I work for clipper as first mate, so can easily organise to get it to the training office.
This jacket was given to me as a gift during my race (15-16).
It is too big for me so I have never worn it at sea.
It's still in perfect condition.
The jacket is in Canada but I'm happy to ship it internationally for an extra fee.
Feel free to email me if you're interested, I'm happy to answer any questions.

Henri Lloyd Elite Mid layer Jacket & salopettes. Excellent midlayers; very warm but light. Used on legs 2 and 3 in 2015/16 race and they kept me warm and dry.
Very good condition; small scratch on the back of the jacket but won't affect performance. Cost over £300 new, so a bargain for someone on the 2017/18 race.
If you are on the cold legs, then these mid layers are a must! The people who stayed the warmest, longest were the people in the Gore-Tex mid layers! I purchased a pair, but unfortunately due to a delay they never arrived in time for my departure and therefore they have never been worn!
If you are someone who gets cold easily, then trust me these are definitely for you!
A full zip Offshore Elite Women's Henry Lloyd Jacket Size Medium, unworn with labels still attached.
This was purchased as a 2nd Jacket for the Clipper Round the World Race. You will get very wet, and having a 2nd Jacket is a great way of staying warm.
Unfortunately due to injury this jacket was never worn.
Almost Brand New Size 6 (EU 39) Dubarry Crosshaven Ocean Boot.
If you want the best boots for the Clipper Round the World Race, then these are the ones for you!! These were by far the most preferred boots on board my boat during the 15-16 race! Purchased for the Pacific Crossing, worn once, but unfortunately an injury stopped me continuing on in the race and therefore these boots are practically unworn and a total bargain!

Hi, this is the full package with a regular size (up to 6'3") yellow 3 layer sleeping bag system plus compression bag storage system. I paid over £250 for this lot in 2016, plus £27 postage! Used for one leg last year and has all been professional cleaned and stored in a pet free and smoke free home since.
No major sailing adventures planned imminently so looking to sell. I've just inspected all the items very closely and I cannot find a blemish. Grab yourself a bargain.
I live very close to Clipper HQ in Gosport so I'm happy to drop this item there once payment is received so you can collect when you come for one of your clipper training weeks. Other postage/delivery/collection options can also be discussed.
