Sail Mates are small magnetic model boats for simulating situations on the racing field.

They help coaches to easily explain and sailors to understand the rules of sailing, boat maneuvers, trim, wind and current directions, starting strategy, sailing tactics and much more. Sail Mates are an excellent tool for sailing analysis and for upgrading sailing knowledge and skills.

They are used by beginners and experienced sailors, by sailing schools, coaches, race officers, umpires and the members of the jury.  

Sail Mates are made of special plexiglass and are completely waterproof. All boats include stainless steel rivet, rotating boom and neodymium nickel plated magnet.

They come in six different packs and three different sizes to meet all purposes and needs. They can be adjusted in different colours and shapes, also customised upon special wishes and creativity.

All Sail Mates are produced in Slovenia, EU, with the uttermost care for every single detail and are recognised by their superior quality.

Our new production method opens a whole new field of possibilities. Sail Mates can now come in different colours and boat-class shapes, customised upon your special wishes and creativity.

Sail Mates, formerly sold under the brand of Bulb, are now starting their own life under their brand name - Sail Mates.
