The entire Impact Collection has been developed alongside high performance sailors to create the ideal suit for all protection needs. Wether you're already an Olympic Champion and training for your next Olympics, you just started sailing an extreme trimaran like the Diam 24, or if you get the chance to learn how to foil during the Red Bull Foiling Generation, the Magic Marine Collection 2018 covers impact gear for everyone.

Nacra 17 Olympic Champions Santiago Lange and Cecilia Carranza Saroli about the Impact Collection when training on the new foiling Nacra 17:
"With the current innovations in sailing the boats go faster and faster every time. This also means we need to protect ourselves better then ever because a crash in the Nacra 17, the boat we are sailing at the moment, is seriously heavy. Nowadays helmets are a standard item to wear, but also some extra protection is needed on the rougher days on the water!”

NEW FOR THE PRO's
Specifically designed for high impact sailing in warm conditions and designed to fit well when worn with any of the other items in the Impact Pro range are the Long Sleeve Summer Shirt and Impact Pro Pants. Both have been designed in a light summer colour to reflect the heat, perfect for warm days on the water!
The Long Sleeve Summer Shirt is specifically designed to improve protection in high impact applications.

An adjustable neoprene waistband means these pants will not fall down.
A TOUCH OF ORANGE DURING THE TOUR DE VOILE
Team Delft Challenge started sailing on a Diam 24 a few months ago; a beautifully built, impressively simple trimaran designed by multihull masters Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost and built in Port La Foret, France. Thanks to months of testing, design, and construction work and the perseverance of Francois Gabart and his team, the Diam is now a full-flying 35 knot beast.
Team Delft Challenge:
"We just started sailing a boat which is fast and a challenge to keep under control. It takes slots of training in different conditions to get to know the boat inside and out before the start of the 40th Tour de Voile in France in one month! No time to loose, so to perform at our best during training we really have to have blind faith in the gear we're waring. We're very happy that Magic Marine wants to provide us with all the gear like tops, long johns, buoyancy aids and helmets!" Impact pro buoancy aid Impact pro helmet."

RED BULL FOILING GENERATION IN THE HAGUE
Red Bull Foiling Generation is about providing talented young sailors, ages 16 - 20 with the opportunity to advance their careers through top-notch hydrofoil racing. On 28, 29 and 30 June in 2018 the Red Bull Foiling Generation holds it's competition in The Hague in The Netherlands, during the finish of the Volvo Ocean Race. Magic Marine is partner of the event and provides all sailors with extra protection gear.
Scipio Houtman, participant in the Red Bull Foiling Generation The Hague is happy to wear the Magic Marine Impact Gear when he's out foiling:
"The Red Bull Foiling Generation gives young sailors around the world the change to experience foiling on the Flying Phantoms. Which is supercool, but sailing on these foiling catamarans is way more extreme than what most of us are used to and therefore not without any danger. It definitely takes wearing protection gear to the next level and we're super happy that Magic Marine hooks us up with the right gear for this event.”
