Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor
The first time a good gust pulls the jib sheet through your hands or you do a rough jibe and the main sheet gets away from you, you'll know why many of us wear gloves. On a nice, gentle day, I'll keep mine in my back pocket. When we get above 12 knots apparent, I put 'em on.
