53 Sailing Innovations

From Leopard Print Sailing Kicks to Sailor Swimsuits

— November 21, 2009 — Eco
Sailboats are expensive, hard to maintain and can only be used during certain times of the year. No wonder rich people love them.

From leopard print sailing kicks to sailor swimsuits, check out the 53 sailing innovations which will make you feel like you are rich enough to own a little piece of nautical freedom.

Implications - Only a very small, fortunate demographic of consumers are lucky enough to enjoy sailing on a regular basis; however, that does not hinder the romanticism and prestige associated with boats, the sea breeze and all things nautical. Incorporating of a nautical theme in fashion, art or advertising communicates a feeling of freedom with a hint of retro revival.
