Brilliant Henri Lloyd Dry suit with latex seals. All seals are in great condition and zip has been waxed. Slight damage on reflective strip from being worn under life jacket (can be seen in attached image) but does not effect the functionality of the suit.
Bought new for the Clipper Race 2017-18
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!!!
A pair of excellent boots for cold conditions. I bought them from Fierce Turtle after reading the recommendation. Mine were used on a level 4 training & Leg 6 of 17/18 - North Pacific and they were perfect; I completely forgot I had them on. Grip was first class and the gaiters did as well as anyone else's keeping water out. The first mate had a pair he'd had for 6/7 years of heavy sailing and they looked like mine (i.e. they wear well)! Highly recommended if you're doing a cold, wet leg - 3 or 6, or going RtW
My shoe size is 9.5/10 in UK, and these fitted well. You need to be sure you fit these with a couple of pairs of socks on, so recommend visiting a shop and determining your size before you buy.

I consider the Le Chameau Neptune boot to be THE very best cold ocean sailing boot in the world. Le Chameau are the Rolex or Rolls Royce of the boot world and the handmade Neptune rubber sailing boot is just great. It's warm (neoprene lined), dry (with built-in gaiters) and robust and hardwearing.
I'm replacing my boots with a new pair - so my trusty old boots, full of character and with about 60,000 sea miles under them, are now available for a new adventure. I'm sure they have another circumnavigation in them yet.
Price New £315. Now just £99.

I requested it and was sewn directly by Henry Lloyd in factory. Recommended by skippers, it's the most effective way to prevent undesired water to pass through collar/wrists in heavy weathers.

Amazing Bose all weather speakers which played on deck during the 13/14 race with no problems whatsoever.
Wires (commonly available) not included. For collection only
In very good condition.

The handmade, natural rubber & Neoprene-lined Le Chameau Neptune sailing boot has long been the favourite of many serious Volvo and Clipper Round the World racers. They keep your feet warm when everyone else’s are freezing! Also great grip and very tough.
This pair have been on two circumnavigations but were only used on the cold, wet legs – notably Legs 3 & 6. They are in good condition. here 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.

Designed for ocean sailing, 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.
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.
Three storage sacks: one large red one for the whole system, a smaller black one for the inner bag when not in use, and a small red one for the pillow pocket. Also included is a compression strap to reduce its size for storage and travelling.
Used for entire circumnavigation of Clipper 17/18 but still in excellent condition. The bag was properly laundered to manufacturer’s instructions at every stopover.
