Re: AC 2013 - crew gear (not T-shirts and jaackets)

I see a wetsuit and a helmet; you know what those are for, right?. I see a climbing harness; I assume he's ready to go up the mast. He also has the end for a Camelpak kind of set-up for hydration. I see a microphone near his mouth, so I assume he has a 2-way radio. And sunglasses - those protect his eyes. I don't know for sure what the thing around his chest is - looks like a PFD, but I don't know for sure. The yellow canister looks pretty big. I can't readily identify the electronics.
