Announcing the winner of SAIL’s T-shirt Contest

by Sail Staff, Posted September 30, 2013
This summer, we put out a call to all SAIL readers to try their hand at designing the next great SAIL magazine t-shirt. We asked for designs that were fun, colorful and exuded the essence of sailing—no easy task! 
Sailors know it is essential to track their sailing and maintenance, and over the years they’ve developed various logbooks to help them do so. Now, there’s an app for that. iLog Sailing Companion ($9.99) combines a ships log, specifications, to-do lists, inventory, and a maintenance scheduler all into one app.

Ecotop Beverage Cover

by Adam Cort, Posted August 27, 2013
The simple but clever ecotop beverage cover allows you to enjoy hot and cold drinks in even the roughest weather without having to worry about spills. Composed of a polypropylene base with a system of silicone gaskets, the ecotop is available in a variety of fun colors, is dishwater safe and is easy to install and remove from most 3in-diameter cups or mugs. 
Gill’s latest sailing pants and shorts are fully waterproof and have reinforced panels on the seat and knees to provide durable protection on wet and abrasive deck surfaces. For those with especially tender tushies, there are also specially designed internal seat pockets into which you can slide a Gill short pad to add some “cushioned support” when sitting on a hard deck.

Manage Your Body Temp

by Adam Cort, Posted March 18, 2013
Helly Hansen is taking personal “temperature management” to a whole new level with its H2 Flow jacket, which can be worn as either a mid-layer or a stand-alone outer layer.
Gill’s new dinghy and technical-style lifejackets are configured with racing in mind, but thanks to their comfort and freedom of movement, they also work well for inshore cruising and daysailing.
