What’s the best way to ensure that our children enjoy sailing with us? Make sure they’re comfortable.

Paramount to having a good time on the water is keeping warm and dry, particularly for the little ones who may not be as active on deck as us parents. We reached out to UK company Nipper Skipper who have provided us with two sets of Didriksons Nera waterproofs, one for Rocket and one for Indigo.

They feature an ‘extend size’ system to ensure a longer life. The jacket provides full upper body cover, has a net and taffeta lining and is totally waterproof with fully taped seams, two way adjustable hood which detaches, covered zip and a soft chin guard to stop any chaffing. There are handy glove security loops and an inner pocket to stash away special treasures.

Similarly the bibbed trousers are also fully waterproof and windproof with adjustable shoulder straps. Adjustable under foot straps help keep pants in place and they even have reinforced knees. The set is made from 100% Polyamide Weave, coated in a waterproof finish (PFC free) and incorporates reflective safety strips.

Most importantly, the kids are happy to wear them!
