Whether you’re already back out on the water or you’re planning to be soon, now’s the perfect time to make sure you have everything you need for the year ahead.

If you’re in the market for a new waterproof jacket, the new OS3 Coastal Jacket is a great all-rounder, suitable for beginners to advanced boaters and because of its water resistance and breathability is a fantastic outer layer for year-round boating.

On the other hand, maybe those old gloves could do with being traded in for a newer model. Gill’s newly launched glove collection has been designed for a multitude of conditions and activities; from comfortable all-rounders to a more technical waterproof glove for offshore sailing.

To claim this staff offer, visit the Gill Website to obtain the product code, size and colour of the item(s) you would like to order, then email these details to, who will be able to confirm the price before placing the order.

Staycation Season is approaching

Transport yourself to a gentler pace of life on the Isle of Wight. Make plans or plan to do nothing, it’s entirely up to you. There’s a whole Island waiting to be discovered when you’re ready. 

Wightlink loves that the Isle of Wight gives you the feeling of getting away from it all, without actually having to go that far. It’s a place where you can be as active as you want or do as little as you like. And, although it feels a million miles away, Wightlink can get you there in no time.

Get outdoors in the sunshine. Idle on the beach. Walk cliff-top paths with or without the dog. Explore beautiful gardens. Hunt for red squirrels (they’re the only colour we do!). Indulge in some thrill seeking. Enjoy your morning run with a different backdrop. And discover exactly why it’s called the Bicycle Island.

RYA staff save 20% on foot passenger, car or car and trailer travel to and from the Isle of Wight.

To claim your RYA staff discount with Wightlink, call 0333 999 7333 and quote A547536, or book via this link and your discount will automatically be applied.
