Maritime summer.... Once again
Memories of summer – the sound of the waves, the taste of the salt, the warmth of the sun – we always long for their return.
And while we wait for summer, we can dress in maritime style for a sense of sunny days and sea air.
Maritime designs are again an essential part of this year’s fashion trends. It’s a timeless look that we at REDGREEN love and that we see summer after summer after summer...
Get her ready for summer!
When spring comes and you're ready to take your boat out for the first launch of the season, remember to go through the steps of preparing it properly. When you sit around for a long time, you get lazy, and your boat is much the same. It has to be checked out, just as you going to a doctor for your annual checkup.
If you have a marina in charge of your boat, they should prepare it for your summer use, but even then, you should ask exactly what they have done to get it ready.
If you do most of your own boat maintenance, prepare yourself a checklist of items you should do every spring before you start trips: one for things to do before each trip during the season, and another for winterizing your boat.
1. Changing the Oil
One of the first things to be concerned with in at the start of the season is lubrication. Oil that has been sitting stationary for a while will congeal and become very thick. You might get a couple of seasons out of one oil change, but it's better to change it each year and not worry about the condition of the old oil.
With an inboard motor, changing the oil can be a bit tricky, and it requires a special pan to catch the old oil. It's not a good idea to let it puddle under the motor and bilge pump it out, or let it leak out the drain hole to pollute the waters.
If you don't know how to drain the oil, ask a mechanic before you attempt to perform this task. There are specific environmental considerations regarding the disposal of used motor oil.
2. Gasoline in the Tank
Prior to a long storage, you should remove the gasoline from the tank because moisture will build up in it while sitting. When you replace the gas in the spring, you might want to add a gas treatment along with the first new tank fill-up.
3. Plugs & Battery
If plugs were taken out to drain water from the block for winterization, make sure they are put back in before cranking the engine.
Check out the battery energy level and charge it with a battery charger if it has lost charge during the off-season.
4. Out of Water Maintenance
Motor boats have water-cooled engines like your car, but they don't have a radiator. This design allows for the water that the boat sits in to cool the engine. For this reason, any time the boat motor is cranked, it has to have water circulation or the block will get too hot and can rupture, which would be very bad news.
If you plan to do any tune up work with the motor running while your boat is out of the water, you need to have a water supply to keep the motor cool. On most inboard motors, there is a vented area just above the propeller where you can clamp earmuffs and hook a water hose to them. This pulls water through to keep the motor from overheating.
5. Air Filter Maintenance
Depending on the kind of boat you have, there may be an air filter to clean or replace at the carburetor. Depending on the amount of use your boat undergoes during a season, it may not be necessary to do this every spring.
6. General Clean Up
If your boat is stored inside a building over the winter, you may not be bothered with pests, but if it stays under a tarp exposed to the elements, there is a good possibility you may have ants, wasps, birds, spiders, and many other kinds of uninvited guests when you take the tarp off. Be prepared to face some "tenants" who must be removed prior to going afloat.
A thorough cleaning and inspection of the boat and trailer is a necessary part of getting ready to go on the water. Wasps and other biting insects will build in the trailer frame and other areas that are open and not protected. It is better to find and remove them when you are still on dry land.
7. Trailer Check Up
Don't forget the trailer when you are checking out the seaworthiness of your boat. The hubs of the trailer axles need to be packed with grease when they become dry, and the frequency depends on how much time the trailer spends in the water when putting the boat in, and taking the boat out.
Trailer tire pressure should be checked every time the boat is pulled. Check the trailer lights to be sure they are operative and the reflectors aren't broken.
8. Taking Her Out
After you have checked everything out completely, you might want to wax your boat to make it really shine when it goes out the first time. Check out your safety equipment and get ready for a fun summer on the water. Take proper care of your boat, and she'll provide you with prolonged and dedicated service in return.
A well cared for boat is a happy boat, and so are its passengers. Ahoy, mate!
Seven is the magic number these days - especially in de negen straatjes (the nine streets).
If all this sounds like a mathematical equation, don't worry - it isn't. But is is a formula for a great new retail concept brought to life in an artistic quarter of Amsterdam.
My7Ways is a new gift shop of which the founder, Astrid Beerkens, describes the philosophy:
"The foundation of My7Ways rests in the magical number seven. 'Seven' speaks to people's subconsciousness; the world over, it pops up again and again as an emblem of happiness, love and perfection. The seven themes of the shop were developed with this mind.
They are: Inspiration, Sérénité, Innocence, Sauvage, Èquilibre, Harmonie (photo) and Amour. With these seven themes, you can express a personal feeling in your unique, individual manner. For giving a gift s giving happiness.
So, the new sellling point in retail, is personalisation and customizing of the the gift you give.
Amsterdam, here we come...
Beauties of the Sea.
Urban mermaid: style from the sea.
Walt Disney’s fairytales made mermaids, oysters, pearls and glitter seem whimsical; but the fashion crowd have claimed the look and given it an urban edge in 2012. From Chanel's pearl-encrusted looks to Givenchy's urban sirens, the mermaid as fashion icon gets fresher, cleaner, and a little sexier for spring.
See more beauties of the sea here!
Spotted recently on the French catwalk, are these rather convinient outfits. Okay, we have an obsession with almost any maritime designs, but this makes no sense! We thought that fashion was all about highlighting the feminine curves. But a smile are put onto our faces, and we are ready to take off for a lovely end of the week.
AMONG TOP 20 DANISH BRANDS
Danish Euroman this month anounces REDGREEN as one of the best brands in Denmark!

ROYAL VISIT AT COPENHAGEN FASHION FAIR.
Our beautiful new 'sister' brand welcomed her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary at the 'Gallery' fair in Copenhagen last week.
Designer, Line Hawaleschka had a chat with Mary, and presented the key items of the new Nordic inspired collection.
The 'Nordic Legacy' collection will hit the stores in August.
//Proud Team REDGREEN
Tres chic, Brigitte...
We are absolutely in love with STRIPES - so timeless, so chic!
Coco Chanel is reportedly the first designer to introduce the Breton shirt to the masses, borrowing inspiration again from the working-classes- in this case, French sailors while she vacationed in Deauville. We drew inspiration from vintage photographs of fashion icon Brigitte - wearing nautical stripes, sunning herself on sailboats and yachts. One can look so effortlessly chic in nautical-inspired fashion- complete with wind-swept hair and sun-kissed skin!
Set your compass for New York
We have a personal affection for the Maritime Hotel, since we love all things nautical and all things navy blue, not to mention our penchant for fabulous fabrics and textures.
The Maritime is located in Chelsea, just two blocks north of the Meatpacking District at 16th Street and 9th Avenue. It was originally built in 1966 as the headquarters for the Maritime Union and was fully renovated in 2003.
As you can see right here, the distinguishing feature of the Maritime's monolithic structure is its 5-foot porthole windows. This was the first luxury hotel to be built in this area of the City and has twelve floors with 120 guest rooms and four suites.
Now, just book your stay in NY, if you share our passion? :o)
MEET SOME OF THE TRENDS AHEAD OF US:
Fresh, pretty colours and prints, shimmering metallic mermaids, optimistic Olympics fever, and the hot new skirt shape: get a bit of your S/S’12 trend fix right here with us!
What we love the most, is the blue n' white tendency in the 'pyjamas party' trend! Go on, and slip into something more comfortable and join the party!
Silky ensambles stepped out of the boudoir and onto the runway with monogrammed sets as J.W. Anderson, gentleman scarf print trousers at Paul Smith and slouchy numbers at Lanvin and Stella McCartney.
It's all about a laid back attitude and a take on evening that is more house party than bedroom.
A year has gone, and a new one is ahead. We look forward to presenting you all to exciting news and even more beautiful designs next year. Thanks to all of our loyal readers and followers.
We promise you lots and lots of more fun and goodies in 2012. Until then, we wish everyone:

BIKER CHICK !
Have you noticed, the leather jacket has gotten sexier and more versatile? A good leather jacket should be able to be worn with anything from a grungy pair of jeans to a cocktail dress.
Hooded leather jackets are one particular style that’s taken off. Cropped cuts are also great for right now, as are vintage styles and anything that can be worn open in that nonchalant, effortlessly sexy way.
Chose your edition in brown or black - both classics for life!

SIMPLY RED !
When you think of a color, red is often what springs to mind. Red can represent power and love, but it can also mean forbidden and blood. Red can attract or repel or elevate or enrage.
Red is one of the oldest color names, it is the first to be seen in a rainbow and has the greatest emotional impact of all.
But red is also the color which, together with the blue and white, gives one the final touch to the maritime look.
AND red is also one of this seasons powerful colors - so go and get some red!
Have a wonderful weekend out there...:)

It's really true: The uniform of polo shirts and pleated skirts can seem ubiquitous these days. So how do you pull off preppy chic without looking like you've just stepped out of a country club?

HELLO CAPTAIN JACK
NEWS FROM 'NAUTICO' SPONSORSHIP IN HOLLAND:
Succes for the J-109 Captain Jack (REDGREEN) during the last held NSR, 2nd overall in IRC-2 after 4 days of hard sailing in a 14-boat class.
The inshore’s of the NSR were great after some days of rest, rehab from the offshore. Difficult racing, 10 matches during 4 days, trying to be as consistant as possible was the target. Captain Jack fought for 1st place till the very last race. Sailing with new North Sails (up- and downwind) and with the REDGREEN new technical line were great and provided them the best possible comfort.
In the meantime Captain Jack is getting ready for the famous ‘’Deltaweek’’ in which the National Championship ORC will be sailed. The team are ready to go for it!!

EVENT IN FLAGSHIP STORE
Event in REDGREEN shop Vejle, Denmark.
Our very satisfied winner - Steen Agerskov - receives his adventure from sweet staff.
The style conscious
Is fashion going through a transformation?
More environmentally conscious clothing has already been a natural thing in many fashionista's
wardrobe. But now trendsetters go one step further, and let sustainability, generosity and long-term thinking affect all aspects of their lifestyle.
Henry Mason reasearch- and analysis manager at trendwatching.com says:
"Social status is no longer the biggest, the best and most expensive - it's also very much about consciousness and generosity. It has become trendy to make a difference. Therefore, it is not strange that we see an increase in the numbers of young people involved in voluntary work. Or that one of Facebook's founders, Chris Hughes, launched JUMO which connects people and charities."
We are inspired to make a difference....:-)
......and the winners are....our fans!
We are happy to announce the lucky winners of our latest competitions.
Steen Agerskov became one of our fans on facebook, and won his own adventure. So now he can look forward to his adrenaline-boost-of-the-year worth 1000€.
Ole Kehlet were so kind to help us improve our online service by answering 5 questions for us, and won a gift-voucher worth 100€ to spend in our digital flagship store.

REDGREEN in new partnership with Denmark’s fastest trimaran
REDGREEN has signed a sponsorship agreement with Team Carbon3, which is launching the first 40-foot racing trimaran in Fåborg on southern Funen, with Jesper Bank at the helm.
Carbon3 is a carbon-fibre trimaran built using state-of-the-art technology and designed by the world’s leading trimaran designer from e.g. the America’s Cup, Nigel Irens. The boat has a calculated top speed of over 40 knots (approx. 75 km/h), and is 100% CO2-neutral, as it only uses wind and solar energy.
The 15 sailors and 10-strong onshore crew can look forward to project launch this summer, with everyone wearing our technical collection developed in close collaboration with former Olympic gold medallist Martin Kirketerp. The technically advanced collection is particularly suitable for the sailing that the Carbon3 trimaran will start in north European waters in mid-May.
Carbon3 has just been pre-registered for the Kieler Woche Multihull offshore race on 18-19 June.

Fashion, Ahoy! The nautical look in the world of fashion.
A stripy top or an officer’s jacket: who doesn’t have one in their wardrobe? Many fashion designers, including Chanel and Gaultier, draw inspiration from elements of sailor’s and captain’s uniforms.
The fashion exhibition ‘Fashion, Ahoy!’ offers an overview of international haute couture and prêt-à-porter from Paris and London. Leading designs from fashion houses including Dior, Gaultier, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Kenzo, Rykiel, Castelbajac, Westwood and home-grown Dutch designers such as Viktor & Rolf, Francisco van Bentum, Jeroen van Tuyl and Marlies Dekkers have been brought together in an exhibition that is the first of its kind in the Netherlands.
Highlights of the exhibition also include the first sailor’s suit worn by the young English Prince of Wales, on display for the first time, and the uniform belonging to HRH Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange, in his rank as commodore of the Royal Netherlands Navy.
The fashion exhibition will be open to visitors from 25 September to 13 March 2011
