If you’re a junior sailor who spends hours out on the water — or if you know one who does — you clearly understand that the clothing you choose to sail in has a huge impact on how your feel, and how you perform, whist sailing. If you meet this description, check out SailFast’s new line of junior (ages 7 – 15) rash-guard shirts. The shirts, which are made out of SPF 50+ material that dries quickly and breathes easily, come in a variety of colors and feature SailFast’s new icon emblazoned on their fronts. Best yet, SailFast believes in company responsibility towards the greater community, and, as a result, they donate 10% of their profits to the fight against Leukemia, Lymphoma, and other blood cancers. Talk about a shirt that makes you feel good both on and off the water.

$40. SailFast; (203) 571-1181.
