For dinghy sailing, it’s so important to look after your hands when helming, hoisting sails and grabbing sheets, and Gill sailing gloves offer exceptional protection and comfort in all weathers, allowing you to perform even in the toughest conditions. With a range of styles available, you can choose short finger, tri-finger, or full finger gloves. Short finger, although more flexible, are solely intended to protect you from rope burns and blisters and provide extra grip. Tri-finger, or long and short finger, gloves fully cover three of your fingers, leave the ends of your index and thumb uncovered, meaning you’re still able to untie knots and use the buttons on a race watch should you need to. Alternatively, you can opt for full finger gloves constructed with 3mm neoprene for additional warmth and insulation, such as the Gill Winter sailing gloves. For colder weather, we would always recommend a full finger glove. Even though you lose a little bit of dexterity, it’s worth it for the added warmth – have you ever tried sailing when you can’t feel your hands?
