Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor

took my lessons last year in FL. I brought my gloves the first day, didn't use them. No foul weather gear, wasn't needed.

when I go out on my own I take the gloves with but only use them 50% of time. Foul weather gear I haven't purchased yet but there has been a few times I wish I had it. LOL

gear I did need was a hat, sunglasses, water, and maybe chapstick. they were more interested in proper sailing shoes then gloves.
