Bring foulies. I only have one pair, but its henry lloyd's ocean racer jacket and bibs. Retail they cost a mortgage payment. But I have NEVER turned down a sail due to weather. And if I was going offshore in Nov., you'd better believe I'd have em on board.
I'm with negrini, pick a different time of year, or risk 40 knots of breeze.
