MUSTO TECHNICAL SAILING COLLECTION 2013 It’s going to be hard to top 2012 in terms of sport and sailing at its best; the Volvo Ocean Race certainly kept us enthralled as we watched the excitement unfold and the leaders get ahead. At Musto, we were privileged to partner the CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand entry And play our part in getting them onto the podium. We worked with the sailors to improve our kit and kept in close contact to note how the kit performed. This is how we created our toughest range, the HPX Pro Series – learn about it on page 10.

OCEANS Former Vendée Globe winner Vincent Riou knows that the first step to winning is to finish, and to finish he, and his boat, need to be in tip top condition.

So as the only former winner on the start line of the 2012-13 race, we wondered what it feels like to finish first in this amazing race? ‘It’s fantastic!’ says Vincent. ‘It is a great moment in a sailor’s life. It is really unique.’ How does Vincent prepare for a race like the Vendée? ‘I try to have the biggest technical preparation I can. I’m meticulous and I like to work on technical improvements. My way of thinking is: if the boat isn’t ready, it is hard to be efficient.’ Vincent’s was the first new boat to be launched, pretty much straight after the 2008-9 race. ‘I’ve sailed a lot with...

an innovative 2 layer Nylon microporous coated fabric with a polyester mesh lining. The fabric breathes by allowing moisture from the warm high humidity zone around the body to escape through microscopic holes which are too small for water to penetrate. The fabric is also treated with a DWR finish (Durable Water Repellent] forcing water to bead and run off. BR1 fabrics have a durable hydrophilic coating which 'breathes' by absorbing moisture from the warm high humidity zone and chemically driving it outwards and away from the body. The fabric is also treated with a DWR finish (Durable Water...

WINDSTOPPER® The WINDSTOPPER® membrane is an ultra thin protective layer which is laminated to a lightweight textile layer, making it totally windproof. It is made of the versatile polymer PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene) which is expanded to create a microporous structure. These micropores are 900 times larger than water vapor molecules, allowing perspiration to pass through unhindered. This means that the WINDSTOPPER® membrane adds total windproofness to any textile without perceivably restricting its initial breathability or weight. OUTDRY® An innovative technology to waterproof garments...
