Drysuit for a small person

Postby Jenny Ball » Tue Oct 05, 2021 7:07 pm

Hi All

Looking for a drysuit to fit a young Sprint 15 crew aged around 10. Hoping to buy second hand as small people have a habit of growing.

Just wondered if anyone had a drysuit in their family that is no longer in use and they would be willing to sell on?

Also checking all the other usual websites too.

Many thanks!

Hi Jenny

About 2/3 years ago I bought a Typhoon Rookie drysuit (https://andark.co.uk/product/typhoon-rookie-junior-drysuit/) for my daughter (she's now 12) - she's never worn it, and it still has the tags on it, and has lost interest in sailing with me :x
The drysuit is a Jnr S, with an unused typhoon fleece onesie (which going by the label is actually a Jnr L!!). It's all been kept in a dark, indoor wardrobe so is basically like brand new!
Let me know if you are interested...

So that’s why you sent me a picture of a dry suit - I did wonder! I think it might be a bit too big as the crew is only 9 but it is hard to tell from photos. So If you don’t mind bringing it to Grafham - David can take a look and that would be great. Thanks Jan!
