Christmas is just behind the corner which means that it is time to start planning all your friends’ and relatives’ gifts. Well, this will not be the typical article where you could find advice for your dearests’ gifts. On the other hand, here we will be talking about the perfect Christmas gift for yourself. In fact, it would be difficult for someone who knows a little or nothing about the nautical sector to give you such a specific present. You are the only one who really knows what’s best for your sailing boat.
How do I choose my gift?
Apparently, it seems to be a simple question to address but, going deep, it is quite hard to identify the sailing equipment you need, especially in terms of time. If you would like to know more about this theme, read our blog article “The perfect checklist to not leave your sailing boat behind during Winter”.
In addition to the natural need for equipment for the usual winter maintenance work, you may also need something that you will use immediately. Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who will be spending Christmas in the warmth of your sailboat and, therefore, you might, for example, need new halyards.
Or between January and February you are already planning to take part in one or more Winter offshore sailing championships organized by sailing clubs in your area and therefore you may need to refresh your deck equipment.
Finally, you may simply be looking for a whim. After all, we are talking about Christmas, the period par excellence for the purchase of things that are not strictly necessary. In this case, you could choose to give yourself a bowsprit that you can assemble with your own hands and that you can decide to install with aluminum or a carbon tube.
To sum up, if you are a sailing and sea lover, we think that there’s nothing better than giving yourself a Christmas gift that will be useful during Summer or, even better, right now. In addition, there are onward promotions on each December weekend. Stay tuned by following our Advent Calendar!
