Although Black Friday isn’t native to the UK, given that Brits don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, it’s still one of the biggest shopping days of the year. This year, it falls on Friday 24th November and is generally regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Of course, Gael Force couldn’t resist getting involved with offering discounted chandlery products for you to benefit from so let’s take a look at some of the best Black Friday deals we have to offer this year.
This list is by no means exhaustive so make sure you visit our Black Friday shop (link at the bottom) so that you don’t miss out on our other great deals on sailing clothing, marine electronics, and much more!
