Over the past few years I’ve been wearing clothes from various sailing brands (I won’t name names!) and have been left feeling like a tom-boy. I have polo shirts with a little sailboat emblem, blue and white striped tshirts with the name of a sail company embossed over the top and several ’normal’ t-shirts with nautical imagery.
When I wear my sailing themed shirts I feel like a boy. The neck lines are high, the waste is straight-lined and there’s ultimately no shape to the average sailing t-shirt.
Most women’s sailing t-shirts are not sexy!
I’ve have therefore taken it upon myself to have some designs created and t-shirts made so to add a bit of femininity to the nautical world. Most women, whether there’re a sailor or not, like to feel beautiful, sexy and appealing.
Of course, when I’m doing a night watch or caught in a Force 10 storm I want durable, warm, protective clothing. HOWEVER, when I’m washing the deck down under the hot sun, meeting other sailors for happy-hour on land or chilling with friends and family in the cockpit I prefer to feel like a woman.
So…here I am introducing a sexy line of 5 different t-shirts
(I’ve seen enough – I want one…How can I skip the reading and go straight to the Sailing Britican Etsy Shop <—- click the link!)
And just in case this is the first visit to my website, let me give you a wee bit of background on SailingBritican.com
Britican stands for BRITish and amerICAN put together. Hubby, a Brit, and I, an American sold all of our possessions, purchased a sailboat and are currently sailing around the world with our 4 year old daughter. As of today we’ve been living full time on our boat for just over 9 months and we’ve travelled 3300 miles (Mallorca, Gibraltar, North Africa, Malta, Sicily, Greece, and Turkey)
Our boat name, logo, ‘branding’ (if that’s what you call it?) is all about ‘choosing life’s course’
We got fed up with what society deems normal and traded in the job, house, car, politics, bureaucracy, processed food, stress and life on land so to create a life that made more sense – a life with more fulfilment.

Enough about me – let’s talk about you and how sexy you, or a woman friend, will look in a Sailing Britican t-shirt!
(Oh my gosh, I want to feel like a sexy sailor. Where’s the shop? Here it is ——> Sailing Britican Etsy Shop)
Here are the obvious benefits and features to buying one of my t-shirts:
– The scoop neck is very wide and every so often slips below the shoulder showcasing a beautiful part of a woman. Shoulders are super sexy!
– The shirt is flowing rather than fitted offering a nice touch of elegance.
– The bottom is very slightly tapered allowing room for any rolls or muffin tops that need to be kept away from the naked eye.
– The arm cuffs are turned over and stitched so they stay rolled even after a wash.
– The fabric is very light an airy – these tshirts would look great with a bikini top tied behind the neck, a strapless bra or no bra at all.
– There’s a beautiful range of colors – Pink, Pacific Grey, Navy and White
– These t-shirts are not sold or distributed at national or international outlets. There are very view places to get these sexy sailing t-shirts so chances are that you, or your woman friend, will be wearing something very unique from others in the crowd.
A not so obvious benefit to buying one of my t-shirts is that, by doing so, you’ll be supporting our cause and all the educational, inspirational and, at times, (hopefully) entertaining information that we’re providing on the website
Not only are these t-shirts sexy but any woman wearing a Sailing Britican t-shirt shows that she appreciates some or all of the Sailing Britican values:
• having the ability to consciously choosing life’s course
• spending quality family time enjoying the fantastic world of sailing
• eating fresh local produce (reduced carbon footprint) with family and friends
• creating deeper and more genuine connections with others
• finding success doing what you love

Let’s talk about the cost…
Every t-shirt ordered is printed on demand.
Once you place an order, I contact either my UK or USA printer, tell them the design and size and they then go to work. The printers print the tshirt, package it and then post it out. This process is great for people like me that don’t live on land however it’s not the cheapest way to go about things. Ideally, I’d like to order in bulk but that’s something to consider later on down the line…
That being noted, the cost of one of my t-shirts is far less than any of the well-known sailing brands. It’s less expensive than a lunch out with friends or couple boring DVD’s!
There’s no shipping fee in the USA or the UK and all the proceeds go to making this website the best it can possibly be

And I haven’t even mentioned the future value of an original Sailing Britican t-shirt
Who knows what might happen? These t-shirts might the very first prototypes for a Sailing Britican line that will one day rival Nautica, Musto, Quba, Crew or any other nautically themed brand. A few years from now you might be able to say:
“I purchased one of the very first Sailing Britican t-shirts back when no one knew that Sailing Britican even existed! I then flogged it on eBay for thousands! What a great investment!”
Who knows – right?!?!?!
T-shirt supplies are limited and if you act right now, you’ll also get a set of 12 kitchen knives
Just joking. There are no knives.
However, supplies are limited. Who knows when I’ll replace these amazing designs with different designs? Who knows when Ralph Lauren Polo might give me a ring and ask to buy me out? Hehehehe.
Okay, I’ll stop joking around
Anyway, thanks for reading about my new sexy sailing t-shirts! If you have any questions, email me on Kim@SailingBritican.com
