Hotly tipped as being ‘the toughest shoes on the water’ this new TriWater range is made with high-performance and technically advanced materials to offer great functionality, durability and comfort.

Tom Burnham, Pit, Quantum Sailing Team: 'It’s been a fantastic week for the Sebago sponsored Quantum Sailing Team and a successful start for 2012 as we secure our first win of the year. The Quantum relationship with Sebago has been great over the last few years; they provide us with all our technical footwear and kit. To have them as a sponsor is really positive as they generate widespread exposure for the Quantum brand.'

The Racer shoe is available for retail in the UK at all major Sebago stores for £89.99, as well as online.
