Get towelled off with Gill
You may not be ready to shop for Christmas presents quite yet, but it's no harm to look about for an apt gift for the sailor in your life, and if it's good value (around or under 25 euro) and made by Gill, then you're in good shape. Read on...

For a really practical gift, the Gill super absorbent, quick drying towel is ideal for life on board. Lightweight and packable, not only does this dry you and then itself in super-fast time, but it also has an anti-bacterial finish and comes in its own compact mesh carry-bag.  This is a must-have item for any kit bag and now comes in grey and new colour pink.


In addition, Gill has a whole range of technical sailing gear and accessories to satisfy any budget.  For more inspiration, click here
