Re: A simple gear question for a new sailor

You've been given some useful advice, and there is little I can add.

I find that the only time I use gloves is when working on the anchor and chain, when I consider it a must to wear them. Otherwise, it will depend on the number of tacks or gybes you'll do in a given time... If you are using self-tailing winches, there is also less need to handle lines and protect your hands.

Best of luck and enjoy!
