Experience Sun Protection Like Never Before

Picture yourself gliding across the water, the wind in your hair, and the sun on your face. In moments like these, the last thing on your mind should be UV damage to your skin. At Gill, we share your passion for sailing, which is why we prioritise providing you with top-tier sun protection as part of our sailing clothing and accessories range.

Our commitment to your well-being is unwavering. Every fabric in our collection with a UPF rating undergoes rigorous independent testing and certification to ensure it meets the stringent standards for UV protection. All of our fabrics with a UPF rating of 50+ are categorised as offering ‘Excellent’ protection, the highest possible rating.

When it comes to shielding yourself from the sun’s harmful rays, choosing the right clothing is paramount. This is especially crucial for those who spend extended periods outdoors, particularly on the water, where UV exposure is intensified.

The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of our fabrics speaks volumes. With UPF 50+, our fabrics block a staggering 98% of the sun’s rays, allowing only a mere 2% to penetrate. This translates to significantly reduced risk of exposure, providing you with peace of mind as you indulge in your favourite activities. Remember, the more coverage you have, the greater the level of protection.

Accessorising smartly enhances your defence against the sun. Our caps offer shade for your scalp and face, while our Wide Brimmed Sun Hat extends protection to your neck and ears. For maximum coverage, opt for our long-sleeved UV Tec Shirts. And with all of sunglasses boasting polarized lenses and 100% UV 400 protection, you not only shield your eyes but also enjoy glare-free vision.

It’s essential to note that prolonged exposure to water or stretching can diminish the protective capabilities of your garment. We recommend complementing your UPF clothing with regular application of high-factor sunscreen.

Embrace the sun without worry. With Gill, superior sun protection is a guarantee, so you can bask in the joys of sailing with confidence.
