2013 Holiday Gift Ideas for Sailors: 6 weeks left!

We know what sailors want for the holidays and Aaron from Customer Service is here to help with four items that are bound to please. What the heck is that jingly noise…AH!!! It’s the holidays, already!

Hey at least we wait until after Halloween to start breaking out the tinsel!  Here are some gift ideas that will make any sailor, naughty or nice, very happy. All the gift ideas shown here are one size, so you don’t have to re-live that weigh in awkwardness. Remember? When you asked them to run around the block at NA’s… Yeah, they probably earned a gift for that.Harken Sailcloth wallet

First up is the Harken Sailcloth Wallet. Its available in Kevlar (yellow), Pentex (white), and new for this year a carbon 3Deye fabric (gray/black). Let the world know your love for sailing with this well priced perennial favorite.

Ronstan Sailing Race Timer Watch

Next is the new version of our best selling sailing watch. The 2014 version of the Ronstan Race Timer. Its has a large face good for all eyeballs old or young, and big buttons that can be used easily even by gloved hands. Two other unique features include the large elastic strap, and the fact that the watch can be rotated in the bezel. The elastic allows the watch to go over a spray top or drysuit making it ideal for the frostbiter.

The watch face allows for mounting options as well. It can be placed around a Laser™ mast or screwed to a bulkhead or thwart on an Opti (Jr. never finds themselves in their boat without a timer!).

Weems and Plath Brass Stormglass

The Weems and Plath Stormglass is a mystical instrument used by the legendary Admiral FitzRoy. The then Captain mounted it to the mast of the HMS Beagle on its historic 1831 voyage with a man named Charles Darwin. Great for a history buff or the sailor who has everything. This functional show piece can be displayed on a desktop or mounted vertically on a wall with the included hardware.

Gill Marine Tool Folding Knife

Last, the perfect thing for stuffing stockings.  The Gill Marine Tool Folding Knife has the essentials that your sailor needs to be safe onboard. It even has a flat head screwdriver (or beer opener for after the race). It also comes with a carrying case that can go on a belt or mast harness.

Ho Ho Ho, ya’ll!
