Made of moreWe are all familiar with the RNLI and the great work they do to safeguard our coast line; this year the life-saving charity are heading into fashion and recycling old life jackets into fashion accessories for men, including a tablet holder and wash bag. Each accessory is heartwarmingly unique, hand made with the maker’s name embossed on the swing tag, and has each had a taste of adventure around the British coast.

sunsailWhether you want to take the family away during the school holidays, have a birthday or anniversary to celebrate, or just want to sail away with friends – there’re so many interesting places to visit from Sunsail’s base in the UK, Port Solent.

Due to its closeness to Port Solent, the Isle of Wight is probably the first destination most sailors head for and some might have seen Dippy the penguin. Dippy ordinarily lives at Seaview Wildlife Encounter and his adventures see him travel through time and space to different locations on the Isle of Wight.

 
Elvstrøm revolutionizes reefing
Friday, 18 April 2014 00:00

Elvstrøm revolutionizes reefingElvstrøm Sails technology team has invented the world’s first fully wind ‘reactive membrane’, creating sails that never require reefing. The revolutionary APR-1 Film contains a honeycomb weave of micro-pores, which automatically open up when wind pressure increases, exhausting excess wind through the sail. This depowers the sail, and causes acceleration and lift on the leeward side. APR-1 can be integrated into all Elvstrøm’s sail fabrics and non-delaminating membranes.
