The latest generation of Garmin’s most successful GPS sailing smartwatch. This adds optional Bluechart g3 cartography enabling it to function as a standalone plotter. It also gains a larger 1.3in always-on screen MOB detection feature. As with previous generations, it can be used to interface with Garmin chart plotters and instrument data, as well as controlling autopilots and on-board entertainment. Lightweight, robust, extremely long battery life, and looks good on shore too.
Also comes in a rather nice Titanium version.
Affordable 6W waterproof and buoyant handheld VHF is compact yet feature packed. The lithium battery-powered radio has chunky keys, a bright backlit screen, a water-activated strobe and an integral FM radio.
Coolers you can stand on, throw around a boat and that will keep ice cold for days.
The drinkware range looks just as practical, whether the water bottles for ramblers to keep your coffee hot, or the wine tumbler to keep your wine ice cold.
The Rambler gallon/half gallon jugs make a lot of sense for day sailing racing, either for warming soups hot or keeping your Dark’n’Stormy fresh!
Yes, not a USB battery pack, and AC mains supply too! Powered by lithium-ion technology. Easily fits in a glove box or backpack weighing at 1.5kg.
A brilliant gift for anyone who wants to test their shipping knowledge with questions that will leave you all at sea!

For watersports and winter sports, wearing a good set of UV-protected sunglasses with polarised lenses year-round can help protect against serious eye damage. But it can be painful and expensive if, like me, you are prone to losing glasses over the side, or sitting on them; these come with a detachable lightweight and ultra thin wire leash attachment. Oakley’s Split Shot glasses come with Prizm lenses to enhance contrast.

With automatic activation, the MOB1 communicates with the vessel you have been separated from and other vessels in the vicinity (up to 5 miles range dependent on conditions).
Nice device that allows you to stay in touch with friends and family in an affordable way. Send SMS to any mobile, email address or another inReach device through the Iridium satellite group.
Why bother with a glove if it causes you not to protect your hands or cause you to lose grip.
These gloves from Gul are designed with superior dexterity, grip and durability.
Water and drones don’t normally make good friends until now! Worlds first 100% waterproof drone.
Not just floating, but also has an easy flip function when upside/down in the water. Plus return to home and follow me function.
Pump up and go! I mean fly! Large viewing windows, and hand holds. Use this on surfboards or paddle boards.
Love this video too from the Robby Naish himself. His 13 year old daughter shows how it’s done. Now say you can’t do it.
Is that enough ideas?! Certainly I could say I’d be happy with all of it. Wait, hang on, was this my gift list? 😉
