Middle Sea Race
A historically challenging event — this 600 NM race has taken international yachts on a breathtaking course around Sicily since 1968. The fleet departs Grand Harbour in Malta for a scenic, but fierce, circumnavigation of Sicily in an unforgiving autumn Sea. Welcome to the Med.

Built with a revolutionary low profile chassis, the EP 38 inflatable ocean racing vest is engineered for the elite ocean racer. Membrane Inflatable TechnologyTM inside reduces weight and increases flexibility, and the Hydrostatic Inflator Technology (HITTM) will only inflate when submerged and not in rain, spray, or high humidity.
The low profile chassis is designed for maximum range of motion during high output grinding and sail changes. This PFD integrates seamlessly with the EP 6.5 Ocean Racing outerwear collection for a head-to-toe sailing solution providing a performance edge in the harshest of conditions.
With a high-vis GORE-TEX® hood, face shield, cinch collar and adjustable Exoskin® wrist cuffs, this windproof and breathable waterproof jacket, built with MIL SPEC 6.5 with GORE-TEX® fabrics, keep your core completely dry for days on end.
This jacket will stand up to the frequent use it will encounter with military-grade fabrics and Cordura® 1000D reinforcements. The reinforced hanging loop protects the jacket from damage when hanging and can even take the weight of an arrested fall.
Utilizing the CohaesiveTM cord lock system for adapting fit, a waterproof Aquaseal® zipper, and a soft fleece lined neck for warmth and chafe reduction; uncomfortable jackets will no longer be an excuse.
Mobility Based SizingTM provides superior range of motion without the bulk of a traditional jacket and articulated elbows, a bottom cinch, and slit sleeve cuff openings offer fine-tuning fit.
Built with MIL SPEC 6.5 with GORE-TEX® fabrics and Aquaseal® zipper for complete waterproofness when integrated with the jacket or smocks.
For the hardest wearing part of the outerwear system, military-grade fabrics were a must and 1000D reinforcements in the seat and knees provide 10X the durability over standard reinforcement.
When worn with our jacket or smock, the low profile salopette shoulders provide no interference and superior comfort over bib style pants. The 2-way Aquaseal® zipper allows for flexibility in venting and, because of its waterproofness, removes excess fabric found with traditional zippers.
Removing excess, yet providing full range of motion, is the basis of sizing platform and a double waist cinch pulls the front of the salopettes in and out of the way when working bent over.
This light weight stretch 3-Layer short offers waterproof and windproof protection with maximum flexibility. With a smart athletic cut, it'll keep water off your seat.
Absolutely watertight, with a 420 denier Hypalon shell and the same waterproof zipper used in our dry suits, to keep your gear dry when everything else isn't
Reinforced, rubberized handles are designed to stand up to the rough treatment
Rectangular construction lets you pack it tighter, and full perimeter tie-downs guarantee it's stowed securely
