Have a look at our photo book on Antarctica and Luke Powell's Working Sail - a Life in Wooden Boat Building - all with gorgeous photos and a story to tell that has great relevance to our customers and potential customers. If you want to understand where our enthuiasm comes from, these two big books help explain the passion. BUY BOOKS, read reviews and more on authors.....
We are Seasalt Clothing Company's only floating shop. You can buy smocks on Eve of St Mawes but we only have a limited stock, so it is better to pre order. We have Seasalt Smocks in two styles that can be customised with your favourite boats name on the back and the Classic Sailing six ship logo. These well made garments are made for organic canvas or organic rip stock cotton. Current boat names available are Eve of St Mawes, Annabel J, Grayhound, Bessie Ellen, Europa, Oosterschelde, Lord Nelson, Tenacious. How to order and sizes.....
We offer the full range of RYA publications that you can order and buy on line from our shop. Many book titles will be perfect for pre course swot up before you sail. Others will help you cement your knowledge gained on our ships. Dont forget we also have distance learning RYA theory courses which you can buy on line - with access to a tutor.
If you are visiting Antarctica or South Georgia and you want to chart the ships progress on your own British Antarctic Survey Chart then we these two areas covered and the whole Weddell and Scotia Sea.
Obviously we hope you are sailing on tall ships Europa, Oosterschelde or Lord Nelson, but we don't mind if you buy one for your granny when she sets 'sail' to the Great White Continent on a cruise ship. BUY CHARTS - see map coverage, details and prices.....
We have greetings cards with an oil painting by Jill Hudson for sale. We hope to increase the range of art products in future, for example calendars and mounted photos. Let us know what you fancy.
