Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor

I have worked with my hands all my life very rarely wearing gloves even my wife complains how rough they are but when I'm sailing I need my gloves to hold the main sail sheet at times to let it slide thru the fiddler block to keep the main trim without having my boat heel over to much. With out gloves my hands would be worn raw.

I also pull my anchor by hand and a different set ofgloves help keep from getting things clean when I get back to the helm.
