Henri Lloyd gloves - neoprene and useful for rope work in wet weather.
Spinlock kneepads - great knee protection for deck work, in good condition and a useful piece of kit. ALL SIZE MEDIUM.
Sealskin Socks - lightly used and great at keeping your feet dry, knee length to prevent rubbing from boots, nicely coloured for easy identification.
If you're doing clipper, you'll need sailing socks and you'll spend a small fortune on them. This set, if you are male and fit "Large" size, will get you on your way without the heavy outlay.
Believe it or not, these 7 pairs of socks are the only socks I took on the 29 day crossing of the North Pacific on leg 6 of the 17/18 race, and they worked out well (though I may have been a bit smelly!). 2 pairs of Seal Skinz sailing socks, one long (over calf) and one medium (mid-calf), 2 pairs of Gill Neoprene socks (these were FAB - very warm) and 3 pairs of merino wool small socks which go underneath the others.
And randomly a pair of merino wool fingerless gloves (pretty sure they're SealSkinz - go under other gloves). This lot will set you back c£140-150. The long socks did all my training levels and the crossing but are still ok. The neoprene & the mid-length just Leg 6. The merino gloves are unused. The merino socks I can't remember!!!
Never worn. Neoprene diving gloves, excellent for helming and cold weather days on board

We regularly receive 500 or more unique visits per month, many from new clipper crew. We're therefore an ideal place for former crew to advertise kit that has served them well and is now surplus to requirements.
Previously, we had a well stocked secondhand kit page but when we moved platform we decided not to migrate it as advertiser demand seemed limited. Apparently this was a mistake, as we are now regularly asked if we list secondhand kit!
So we brought it back..!

How it all Works
All kit is advertised here by sailors and/or previous crew. Most is secondhand and 'sold as seen'.
