About Us

SailingKit was established by David Andrew, a long time sailor, and Liz Egan, an enthusiastic kayaker, who for years had been buying Rooster products from overseas.

We wondered why such a great brand wasn’t as well known, or as easy to obtain, in Australia, as we felt it should be.

SailingKit was launched as an online Australian retailer in October 2015.

We aim to keep our prices low by tailoring our range of stock to products sizes and colours that are most popular. This is an ongoing process and we monitor our orders to keep our stock as up to date as we can. Special orders and back orders play a big part in letting us know what you want.

You can also visit the Rooster Sailing UK website to see the full range of products available. If you find something you want that we’re not currently stocking, please contact us and we can get it for you as a special order in double quick time.

We’re passionate about supporting club and youth sailors, the ones who may not be at the top of their class, yet nonetheless show up week after week to enjoy themselves and make sailing the great sport that it is; inclusive of all ages and skill levels.
