To make life onboard that little bit easier we’ve uncovered some of the coolest gadgets to ensure wherever you’re headed for, it’s smooth sailing...
- OverBoard Waterproof Tech Phone Case
Ideal for if you’re sailing with children or want to take some underwater snaps, OverBoard’s waterproof tech cases provide comprehensive protection for your iPad, iPhone and tablet.
- Luci lights
These inflatable solar lights float - and you can hang them just about anywhere on your boat! Cruisers like to hang them in their cockpit or hang it off the back of the boat when at anchor so that it can be easily spotted when returning at night. Shop the Luci lights on Amazon here.
- Mobile Wi-Fi
Because data roaming can be expensive, and the last thing you need is to rack up a pricey bill at the end of each month, MiFi lets you share a mobile connection from a single SIM with up to 10 devices, meaning you only pay once. With a built-in LCD screen, it shows you battery life, how strong the signal is and how much data has been used. You can use it with any SIM from any UK mobile operator and it costs £69.16 from Amazon.

Simply connect the sunglasses to a dedicated smartphone app, press the button to start recording and wirelessly add your videos to your Memories folder on Snapchat. Available in 3 different colours for £129.99, shop your Spectacles here.
- GoPro Omni
The GoPro Omni enables you to capture and edit 360 degree footage. The Omni holds siz GoPro Hero 4 cameras in a spherical layout and you simply use it as you would a normal GoPro.
