I looked at most of the knee pads on general sale and the Spinlock ones looked ideal, but thought I would see if anybody else had any other suggestions. 

I had to take three months out last year because of my knees and want to avoid the same this year..  

Dropped Spinlock a line yesterday, as I sail normally sail an OK as well as an Enterprise with my kids and was not sure they would have the flexibility, but they have suggested  they are fine for dinghy sailing.

i normally wear a basic support when doing offshore stuff and used to wear a musto (i think, was a long time ago) neoprene pair for sailing the contender.

ive had to cancel sailing for the rest of this year due to knee and foot ligament injuries!  but when i get back into it i'll be having a closer look at the spinlock knee pads.  not just padding but proper support apparently.  cheapest here

although you can buy them direct from spinlock.

alterantives are proper knee supports, there are different types for different problems, be it the inside of your leg, outside, somewhere inbetween, muscular, ligaments, etc etc.  best consult with a gp or sports physio.

best of luck
