There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad kit!
There are two types of people in this world; first up are the ones that go out sailing when it's way too cold but HAVE to put the hours in on the water. They put on every item of kit they own and when they reach the point where they can barely move, they put on an extra layer to try to ensure they don't get cold on the water.
The second type of person also HAS TO put in the hours on the water and they also find themselves going out sailing when it's way too cold. But these people put on a SuperTherm Steamer and an Overhead Buoyancy Aid. Yes correct. You put on your Steamer and your BA and that's it. You can move like a NINJA which keeps you warm, and the first time you feel the cold is when you start to relax after your session. That's when you put on your ProAquafleece Rigging Coat. We are Rebecca and Klara from Sweden. We put all our focus on our Olympic campaign in the 49er FX class. It doesn't matter if the weather is horrific - snowing, raining, extremely windy and really cold - our goal is to be the best 49er FX team on the planet. Our journey has only just started and we still have a long way to go, but we can proudly say that we are getting closer to our goal every day with time on the water, whatever the weather!
We have never enjoyed sailing in cold Sweden as much as we have this winter - the quality of our sessions has really improved. It's really hard to focus when you are cold and clumsy, so believe us when we tell you guys that the Supertherm Steamer is the best product we've ever tried! Its pretty tricky to put on but when it's on, it's on! There is no bad weather just bad kit.
The Steamer and the Rigging Jacket have saved us this cold season and will continue to do so until our sea becomes an ice hockey rink, then we'll move to Cadiz in Spain 8-) . So thank you Rooster for helping is on our journey to become the best team on the planet! You always send us the best sailing gear and never disappoint us!
