For schools teams, uniforms are great for identification and a signal of strength and focus of a group. Many uniforms schools have available to them are usually general purpose, OTB can bring together a uniform tailored to your requirements.
Wentworth's sailing academy approached us to form them a uniform for their elite team competing at a national and international level. With our partnership with Line 7 and Henri Lloyd, we were able to bring together a uniform that is very practical for their situation. The uniform is composed of a Henri Lloyd long sleeve fast-dri top and a Line 7 squadron jacket all with screen printed insignia. The fast-dri top is suitable for the sailors to wear both onshore and on the race course with its UV protection. The squadron jackets can again be worn on and offshore. Even better for the sailors who often have to wait for racing on a change over boat the jackets can be worn over the top of all their regular clothing to keep them protected from the elements and ready to jump back into boats and get the job done.
Their school is delighted by how easy it is to recognize their sailors in a crowd and on the water when the uniform is worn.
Competing in the 2017 Coastal Classic, the crew of this high-performance race yacht has been kitted out in one of our uniforms. This time with Foward WIP light sailing shorts and smocks as well as red Henri Llyod long sleeve fast-dri tops sure to catch the eye up in Russell after the finish.
