Announcing a new clothing partnership with Gill 

With perfect timing for TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show, the CA has entered into a new clothing partnership with the global sailing clothing brand Gill.

CA members can place orders from an initial selection of technical and leisure items at a discounted rate from the 2019 Gill range and more products will be added to the CA’s Online Shop in good time for pre-Christmas delivery.

The Gill/CA range comprises Men’s and Women’s Ocean and Coastal waterproofs, a variety of technical jackets and gilets, fleeces, thermals, sailing boots, sailing gloves and bags.

The CA’s General Manager Lucy Gray, comments: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Gill on board with the CA and the timing is perfect so we can promote a selection from the range during TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show next month. Wearing the right kit is such an important part of helping our members enjoy positive experiences when they’re sailing, so I’m sure they will be equally delighted with this new partnership.”

To celebrate the launch, the CA is running an on-stand competition throughout TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show to win a set of Gill’s OS2 waterproofs, in Blue for Men and White for Women, valued at £500.

The Show competition prize is a set of
Gill OS2 Waterproofs including Jacket & Salopettes

Proudly celebrating its 110th Anniversary this year, the Cruising Association (CA) returns to Ocean Hall with a new, larger and even more eye-catching stand to welcome members. The CA is also looking forward to attracting more cruising enthusiasts to discover the delights of cruising whilst flying the CA burgee and offering many reasons for them to take out membership whilst visiting the Show.

CAptain’s Mate is the original & most comprehensive mobile cruising App

providing a global resource at your fingertips!

Up to date and first-hand cruising information is one of the Cruising Association’s most valuable assets with over 6,000 members sharing their worldwide cruising knowledge from real experiences. Members can download the original and most comprehensive knowledge-based cruising App, CAptain’s Mate, and get ready, get set and go!

A key USP is that all reports can be downloaded offline. Another bonus is that if a particular marina/port has a facility to allow you to pre-book your mooring, either online or by phone or email, members will often include that information including any hyperlink, in their report.

CAptain’s Mate continues to expand your horizons

The CA continues to build upon the success of CAptain’s Mate and is introducing a fresh version, including some brand new features, which is expected to be available and demonstrating at the Boat Show.
