Title: Sailing boots advice
Post by: StuW on October 15, 2020, 12:16:18 PM
Hi everybody...
Looking to purchase some new boots.
I love the aigle style of boots but unfortunately aigle dont produce them any more so I bought the closest thing I could get which were the gill competition...well never again...
So 18 months later it's back on the hunt for comfortable, robust and practical boots for National 12 sailing week in and week out.
Any suggestions and more importantly personal feedback really appreciated.

Hi Stuart,


Anything with a lace rather than a zip in my experience. I currently have some Rooster ones but after 3 years they’re starting to wear out, hopefully the Orwell doesn’t get cold too quickly this year!
