Brave the elements of Bass Strait with protection from Gill

Designed for any weather conditions, the OS2 Offshore jacket and trousers are the perfect solution for the famously rugged conditions the Rolex Sydney-Hobart can present – or for any time you venture offshore.


The OS2 is the leading two-layer fabric wet weather system. The OS2 system creates a waterproof, windproof and breathable protective shell all while offering optimal fit, bold colours and product innovations at an affordable price point.

The OS2 has been created with laminated, moisture-management technology with a durable water repellent outer finish and fully taped seams for a waterproof seal. The advanced composite waterproof fabric features a combination of Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic technologies that efficiently transport moisture away from the skin whilst keeping you 100% protected from the elements.

Gill Pro Gloves 

Gill Pro Gloves are essential for offshore racing and cruising. Their pre-curved construction and seamless palm grip give you the most comfortable, reliable performance yet.

Next-generation Proton-Ultra XD palm and fingers are now softer and more flexible yet still with an incredible level of durability and protection. Two-way stretch fabric across the back of the hand provides UV 50+ protection and is water repellent.


Gill is now distributed by MarinePlus. Visit the website to find your local marine retailer or shop online.

Baltic Lifejackets, no compromise safety gear for offshore racing

Baltic Legend SLA Lifejacket

When it comes to safety, compromise is not an option. Baltic, Europe’s largest lifejacket manufacturer, has designed an ergonomic lifejacket with the goal of being the most comfortable fit on the market.


The ergonomic fit means it feels less intrusive around the neck and shoulders so can be worn all day without any discomfort. A sweat-wicking collar and padded back are coupled with detachable crotch strap and class-leading 165N buoyancy. The Legend also has an inspection window for visually checking that the firing mechanism is charged to ensure everyday peace of mind.

Legend model ”SLA” is equipped with integrated spray hood for heat insulation and sea spray, plus a water activated strobe light in case of night time MOB. A dedicated fitting point for an AIS beacon makes it the full package for personal floatation and rescue. It is approved by World Sailing for OSR.
