Junior Sizing Notes & Guidance

Many sailing brands make youth or junior specific gear, though each brand uses a slightly different sizing chart and scale for assigning junior sizing. Typically, Gill 'junior specific' gear is available in sizes Junior S, Junior M, and Junior L, which roughly correlates to a Kids 8, Kids 10, and Kids 12. The brands Ronstan, Stohlquist, and WinDesign follow a similar convention. Zhik sizing now includes a fourth size, so their range is Junior S to Junior XL, which correlates to Kids 8 - Kids 14. We understand this can be confusing, so our best advice is to please consult size charts on specific products for more information before making a sizing decision for your junior sailor.

  • Junior S = Kids 8 (JS/KIDS8)
  • Junior M = Kids 10 (JM/KIDS10)
  • Junior L = Kids 12 (JL/KIDS12)
  • Junior XL = Kids 14 (JXL/KIDS14)
