Bought for 2017-18 legs 6 & 7 There is a little loose stitching on the wave guard which is not detrimental to the boots.
Neoprene lining. Built-in wave-guard (gaiter) ensures dry comfortable feet. The ultimate boot for professional sailors. Hand made 100% natural rubber outer. Extra layers of reinforcement around the front of the boot both protect the foot and prolong the life of the boot.
Le Chameau non-slip sole. The slight wedge shape raises the heel, distributing the weight evenly across the sole, giving a firm contact between the boot and the deck
Colour: Dark Grey with Red Wave Guard

These were an absolutely essential piece of kit for me for the colder legs.

Gauss sleeping bag in excellent condition. Comes with a bag - but the handles are slightly falling off! Removable inner fleece layer, and fleece lined outer layer - both waterproof.
Extremely warm piece of kit and never once got wet on the inside. People who used other sleeping bags did complain of getting a bit chilly on the colder legs and had to sleep in layers - but not with the Gauss house!

This Ursuit Mid-Layer Drysuit (Medium )for sale.
It's a Gortex drysuit with seals at the neck and wrists and it's designed to be worn as a layer between midlayers and your 'shell'. It weighs less than 1kg and fits in a very small bag - also comes with a Ursuit beanie.
It is in very good condition only being used for one week on leg 4, in the 17/18 Clipper Race. It is very comfortable and not only keeps you completely dry, including your feet, but also warm. I would really recommend a mid-layer dry-suit.
Medium is suitable for 174cm man in height and foot size 8
Best piece of kit I owned for my Clipper Race. Bought brand new (£1000) for Leg 6 and wore it every day for 2 weeks in the middle of the Pacific. In my opinion - an essential piece of kit for anyone wanting to do one of the wetter legs! Still in excellent condition with no tears or worn patches.
Size medium was perfect for me (dress size 12/14) as it meant I could put as many layers as I liked underneath - including a a thick Primaloft jacket and still be able to move freely.
Neck seal changed for neoprene for extra comfort but could easily be swapped back to latex should you prefer.

Lightly used Gill 914 sailing boots. The boots are waterproof and extremely light weight. This is a nice feature if you intend to wear them for extended time. The reason for selling? They are the wrong size for me.

Padded shorts really help reduce salt sores, a problem suffered by everyone on the hotter legs and protects you from burning your bum on the hot deck!

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!
