WHAT TO WEAR FOR POWER BOATING
Whether you’re cruising along the coast or travelling at high speed, you need fast-drying clothes and waterproofs that counter wind and spray. The key to a good powerboating kit bag is also to keep it light so focus on versatile, adaptable garments that don’t add bulk. Integrate essential pieces into a 3-Layer System to maximise your comfort out at sea.
LAYER FOR POWERBOATING
High performance RIB or speedboat riders will encounter a greater amount of spray. Stay dry and comfortable in a weatherproof jacket.
The mid layer builds on the temperature regulation of your base and protects you from the elements. When temperatures plummet or the speed of the boat picks up, a warm layer is essential. Look to a lightweight jacket or gilet that can be easily packed down and stowed away.
The foundation of your kit. As powerboating tends to be a warm weather activity, an effective base layer should keep you cool, be breathable and fast drying. When facing sun exposure, also ensure that the fabric is UV treated.
