Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor
If you need sailing gloves, you are doing something wrong (or you are racing, where time matters). Brute force is not necessary or effective if you know how to use your equipment. Wrap that line around a winch or the end of a cleat.
Regular gloves are fine for keeping your hands warm when it is cold out.
